    Well said Heather. A friend who has knocked the head of a few looks at it the same way.

    They lived free till they died.

    Can't say that for all animals slaughtered. Mind you the lamb I get, another rather cute and cuddly beast conveniently left off the ban list spends its summers swarving about the hills & cliffs around Branch before it gets knocked on the head and sent to my freezer.

    The FACT that it is not only the fur that is used but the entire animal has been the major piece of information conveniently left out of the animal rights groups argument against the hunt. Letting the public know people actually eat the meat is their worst nightmare, so they are going to try to spin it as negatively as possible.

    For anyone who is interested in what the Sea Shepherd has to say about the lack of ice and seal pups littering the beaches of the gulf of St. Lawrence, feel free to check this link out....

    http://www.seashepherd.org/news-and-media/editorial-100302-1.html

    Such a dramatic title of the article as well... The Drowning of the Ice Babies....truly captivating.

    Some of the more interersting points.... that Captain Paul Watson claims

    Now the problem is that seals need ice and if there is no ice the seal pups will be dropped in the water where they will drown, or the seals will be forced to give birth on beaches putting them at the mercy of uncontrolled locals who will kill them for amusement.

    In the Gulf of St. Lawrence, there should be at least a million seals but only 500 seals have been counted. Magdalene Island baby seal clubbers say they are fearful their hunt wont happen. Five hundred years ago, there were some forty million seals on the Eastern seabird including grey seals, hood seals, harbor seals, the now extirpated walrus, in addition to the harp seals. With seal populations reduced to just under ten percent of their original numbers since the time of the European colonization, the various species of seals have been much diminished and thus placed in a vulnerable position for dealing with the increasing threat of climate change.


    So in conclusion.... Iin 1497, John Cabot estimated the seal population to 40 Million, that's more than the population of Canada. At present, there are apparently 500 and we are alll looking forward to pass the time by clubbing seal pups stranded on the beach....

    Truly he is a genius...

    Bacon, uuummmm, is there nothing bacon can't do?

    For everyone against the hunt - next time you eat any kind of meat or wear animal hide - please visit a slaugterhouse first. Animals killed in slaughterhouses are raised to be KILLED and most live a horrendous life up to that time. Seals are born free, live as they were meant to and not all will be killed. How about putting some effort in stopping the torture of animals in research labs or fur farms?

    now that everybody realizes that seal can be eaten it's time to open a fast food chain to sell all this delightful meat.I f people will eat large quanities of corned beef which comes from brazil why not seal.

    The fact that the meat is only being consumed for political purposes, and that it needs to be wrapped in double smoked bacon to kill the taste, clearly demonstrates that it is not particularly palatable, the animal rights group said in a news release.

    -----------------------------------------------

    What a ridiculous statement! The use of bacon is not intended to kill the taste of the meat, it enhances the flavour. Anything wrapped in bacon ultimately tastes better. Bacon wrapped in bacon makes bacon taste better. The mere existance of bacon makes this world a better and more delicious place.

    It is an unfortunate fact that not enough of the meat is consumed. If every household would eat even one, or one more, seal dinner we'd be able to put that problem to rest. It is a good lean high protein food source. I'm sure other populations would just love to have a full belly.

    Beyond that I've written to gov't and suggested that all seal carcasses should be brought to port and canned and stored. They can then be given to the poor in our own country or shipped to disaster or famine sites like Haiti, Indonesia or places in Africa. This would shut up one argument for detractors. Better this than the planned EU cull where they will just let them sink into the ocean. What a bunch of stupid people and some here in Canada actually think the EU is ethically better than us. At least we try to use the animal, but we should try even more.
