Why seal hunts need to be banned immediately
Each year hundreds and thousand of "little adult" harp seals (12 days old) are slaughtered by being clubbed to death while they are defenseless and have no where to swim away. 42% of the seals that are killed are still alive while they are being skinned. Most fishermen from Canada say that all of the seals are depleting the cod (a type of fish) from the ocean. When actually the seals are the ones who eat the animals that eat the cod. So if the hunters just left the poor little seals alone there would actually be a lot more cod out in the ocean. So when people ask the fishermen the question "Why do you kill the poor baby seals" they will tell you a dirty little lie. The seal hunts need to be stopped. Millions oppose these seal hunts. So the Canadians need to stop the torture.
