Thank you

Thank you so much for letting us know about the petition. It is barbaric and disgusting and I'm glad I've been able to sign. I'll spread the word too

The petition is still active! Please sign!

Please send your friends this link to the petition to help even more:

The seal hunt has begun - yet the Canadian government still hasn't come clean with the truth: that the hunt has little economic benefits and horrific cruelty to seals.

As reported in the BBC, the hunt's resurrection in recent years is mainly tied to fashion - where seal fur has become politically acceptable to wear again in countries like China, Russia and Norway.

Which is why we need as many voices as we can muster to get the truth out about the hunt. Consumers need to be informed about the horrific cost of life involved in purchasing a non-essential fashion item like seal fur. Send this link to your friends to demand that Canada come clean to the world about the true nature of the seal hunt:
