The Harp Seal pup. These adorable animals are hunted for their fur and meat. The most shocking and cruel hunting practice takes place in Canada. Annually, the government allows for a commercial harp seal hunt in which thousands of baby seals are shot or bludgeoned to death and then stripped of their fur. In 2015, 400k seals, many under 3months old, were killed. How this still goes on is beyond me �. Luckily, many people are aware of the hunt now and are taking action. If you look up the seal slaughter on PETA they have a link that allows you to send the Canadian government an email about why you want the seal hunt to end.
