Seal Hunt 2010: The Killing Begins
A "Live from the Ice" dispatch from Rebecca Aldworth, director of Humane Society International/Canada
by Rebecca Aldworth
It is hard to find words to describe what I have witnessed today. In the twelve years that I have documented this seal kill, this is some of the worst cruelty I've ever seen.
The Canadian government claims that it has made the hunt humane ... but there is not a person alive who could watch what occurred today and think for one second it should continue. Read the rest of Rebecca's dispatch on Wayne's blog»
Then please support the end of the seal hunt in Canada: donate to save seals, or sign the pledge to boycott seafood from Canada»
Rebecca Aldworth is Executive Director of Humane Society International/Canada. For the past decade, she has been a firsthand observer of Canada's commercial seal hunt, escorting more than 100 scientists, parliamentarians and journalists to the ice floes to witness the slaughter.
