Seals and the Seal Hunt in the News in 2013

An often asked question is "Why does the seal 'hunt' continue?" The killing in 2012 sheds more light on the true motivations of Canada's seal slaughter supporters.

In 2012, Canada conducted a 100% subsidized seal slaughter. Paid for by Newfoundland taxpayers, over 69,000 seal pups were killed to 'stockpile pelts' in hopes of future demand.

Sealing: an important part of Atlantic Canada's economy or a bloody tradition that some refuse to renounce despite the closure of pelt markets?

In this section, Harpseals.org provides news articles on the slaughter and related issues.
