Tears Again ...

I swear it’s not that time of month. Do you know that the Canadian government says it’s humane to BLUDGEON baby ... BABY seals to DEATH with a CLUB?????? Oh. My. God. How can you not cry?

Some days I just wonder what the hell kind of animal we humans are. I mean, what's wrong with a coat made of cotton? People really want to wear those poor, little, dead babies? What the fuck is wrong with a cotton coat?

'Please visit Canadian Seal Hunt to learn about how companies like Costco sell seal oil capsules. Also learn about these companies who manufacture products from dead baby seals: Prada, Pajar, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Birger Christensen, Versace, and Vogue Furriers. Also learn about why you should boycott these sea food restaurants Red Lobster, & Long John's Silvers.'

I can't even fathom a so-called educated, so-called 'humans' sitting in an office somewhere going "OKay, so we'll set the quota at 270K" Particularly after bragging they'd reached the '06 quota of 375K.

Sickening.

how does someone who does that sleep at night?

Oh, god, that's awful, Lainey. They're not getting my business!!

Me, too, Rhonda. I forgot to credit Susan Wiggs for pointing me this way. I went to the website, saw the video of the men clubbing these little babies, and I choked on my tea and immediately started crying. The squeals of the poor babies as they died was the worst.

I suspect, Rhian, that they go somewhere that dehumanizes (desealizes?) the babies. It's horrible. I watched a few videos on YouTube to find one to post for you guys, and you could not only hear the babies crying, but the activists who were photographing it were crying, too.

It's totally heartbreaking.

Canada isn't the only country that hunts seals you know.
It's just the easiest one to get at.

Really? I didn't know that, Bernita. I didn't pick that particular video because it said "blame Canada," by the way. The rest of the video was just the closest to the one that had appalled me.

I blame the consumer, mostly. They should include pictures of the dead babies with every fur coat, so the consumer remembers exactly what they're buying.
