Seal pup cull is cruel

PUBLISHED: 13:10 14 April 2008 | UPDATED: 20:07 05 July 2010

THE Canadian government is culling approximately 150,000 baby seals because they have decided there are too many of them.

Their mum's are still pregnant for about the same time as humans and delivers their babies just the same.

THE Canadian government is culling approximately 150,000 baby seals because they have decided there are too many of them.

Their mum's are still pregnant for about the same time as humans and delivers their babies just the same. They also breast feed them just as humans do.

The mother seal teaches her baby to swim, play and hunt for food and then sends it out into the big wild world. She also shows the same love and emotions towards her baby as humans.

I am not ashamed to say as I write this letter I am weeping for them. My heart bleeds for them when I think of what is going on.

We all must do our bit to try to stop this cruelty. Please write to your MP about this and the Canadian embassy and boycott Canadian goods.
