Hearing about the Canadian seal slaughter, in which thousands of seals are beaten or shot and then skinned every year, is nothing like seeing it for yourself. The photos below show seals suffering at the hands of the greedy fur industry.

What You Can Do

As Canada prepares to celebrate its 150th birthday in 2017, it’s old enough to know better than to allow the barbaric trade to continue. Please sign our petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to put a stop to this cruelty.
