Brutal Canadians Laugh at the Rules and Exceed Kill Quota Set: Numbers of Baby Seals Killed Will Go Well Beyond Legal Limit



Just outrageous. Again, really shows what kind of people these are. They not only are they engaging in an unnecessary practice that is wasteful and beyond cruel, but they decide they will make their own rules and actually kill more than their buddies in the government are allowing! Just outrageous. What a scary mentality. Just look at this quote from the article below:

“20,000 seals have been killed in the north coast in three days despite the quota of 7,800. Though the quota is 64,000, 84,500 seals have been killed in Terra Nova in the west.”

While seal hunting continues in Canada despite the protests of Animal Rights Activists, fixed quotas have been exceeded in some parts of the country, reporters said.

The Speaker for the Canadian Ministry of Hunting said to Radio-Canada that more than 20,000 seals have been killed in the north coast in three days despite the quota of 7,800. Though the quota is 64,000, 84,500 seals have been killed in Terra Nova in the west. The Canadian government had set a quota of 325,000 seals to be hunted this year, claiming that the population of seals in Greenland was 5, 8 million and hunting would not cause this species to extinct. Last year 325,000 seals were hunted in Canada, as well. The US had stopped baby seal export in 1972 and the European Union in 1983. White baby seals are separated from their mothers during the hunting season in Spring, they are dazed by strikes so that their furs are of high quality. They are later skinned alive.
