The seal hunt in Canada

Hi

Just saw an article in the biggest news website here in Israel (it is in Hebrew so I will not post a link) about the seal hunt in Canada.

It is the first time that the article is balanced the quote the head of the Canadian fishing department that says that all the animal rights movements use the seal hunt in order to raise money for their campaigns and the excuses they use are not relevant and are just for the media.]

I was very happy to see that for the first time you hear the "other" side of the story (our side) and not just the rubbish of the animal rights movements.

According to the article about 325,000 seals will be hunted this season. (I think a it is a nice supply for some full length coats )

Just thought you should know.

Copied from on of my recent posts

 

The anti-fur people and animal rights people all suffer from a (Western) human frailty called "Cuddly Toy Syndrome' - 'Ah isn't it sweet and cuddly and furry, we must protect it; i used to cuddle up to a toy one of those in bed when i was little!"

 

I bet McC*rtney and the insignificant one wouldn't be photographed in the snow to stop the culling of rats (but the're not soft and cuddly!). He would be a lot better of giving away all his untold wealth; self-righteous ****!

PokerAce,

 

The Independent newspaper printed an article about Canada's seal cull today although the points and arguments raised were the usual ones.

 

However, there was a very small article beneath saying that fur sales were up 30 percent in the UK last year. That article can be found on their website at this link:

The Premier of Newfoundland went on Larry King Live to debate Paul McCartney and and told him (McCartney) on live T.V. he was shocked at how uninformed McCartney was on the actual situation.

 

Just goes to show celebs are more interested in the band wagon than the band.

What an appauling pun Mr M!!

FWIW, a few newspapers were running ads in newspapers asking for money. Thought of returning the ads to them without the donation but including the INuit statement. If enough people did........

Hmmm. Not being rude or anything (welll, maybe a bit!) If her face is an advertisement for a healthy vegetarian life, then I think I'll stick to my meat and milk thanks.

 

I'm a good age, very healthy, and extremely happy, and I reckon pints of milk as a kid is the reason I have my teeth!!

 

I reckon she'd find a smile did far more for her life than being a veggie.

 

No offence to tother veggies here. I often eat veggie but wouldn't dream of pushing it on others.

 

btw - many thanks all those who welcomed me onto the site - it does make a difference

In today's newspaper there was an article about the seal hunt.

It said that there were protesters chasing after the hunters' boats in rubber Zodiacs.

 

The hunters were pelting them with freshly disembowled sea gull guts!

 

Warning: Tasteless Joke Below

 

A seal walks into a club.

 

I believe the joke goes:

 

A seal waddles into a bar. He props himself up on the stool.

The bartender says, "What'll you have?"

The seal replies, "Anything but a Canadian Club!"

Peta tried the anti milk protest at a school here in Scotland-dressed as cows standing at the school gates-they didnt reckon on the hardy Scotts kids who attacked "the cows" with cartons of milk-the sight of a peta "cow "running for his life with a group of angry schoolkids chasing him armed with milk cartons always brings a smile!

Goodness, with all the abuse i've given my body over the years i should be dead by now. I've lived on a diet of cereal (with milk) & toast for breakfast (Or an occasional 'fried' breakfast). A sandwich or soup for lunch and meat and two veg for dinner. Oh please help me i am obviously killing myself!!!!

 

Somebody told me that smoking gives you cancer - well you learn something every day. PS Why haven't i got it; i smoke and drink full fat milk.

 

Stuff it, i'm going to give up the milk and stick to drinking Meths; i don't want to kill myself.

Great news for fur lovers in the USA! I discovered a handful of webpages that are still (legally!) allowed to sell seal furs to us

 

And speaking of seal jokes, here's one that was in the newspaper comics lately:

 

The dog: "Won't you sign my petition against seal clubbing?"

The cat: "Why would I do that? Seals should be allowed to spend their nights doing whatever they wish."
