    Protests against world's largest seal hunt

    The Chicago Sun Times has this report, on the world's largest seal hunt, which takes place yearly in Canada. It does appear, from what i've seen and heard of this practice in the past that this is quite barbaric:

    Animal rights activists say the pups are clubbed to death and often skinned alive, but sealers and Canadian government officials who monitor the hunt insist the seal pups die instantly, under strict guidelines. ''It's just horrific out there. There is blood all across the ice and seal carcasses as far as the eye can see,'' Rebecca Aldworth of The Humane Society of the United States said from the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Tuesday. ''We've seen seals that were moving around and breathing, that have been left in these piles, some left conscious and crawling,'' said Aldworth, a native Newfoundlander who has observed the seal hunt for the last six years.
