Canadian Sealing: A Labyrinth of Lies
Bang — one dead seal out of a population of about 7,500,000.
For over 50 years, Canadian marine mammal scientists have studied the harp seal herd off the east coast of Canada, so we have a very good understanding of them.
From this science, the Government of Canada sets annual quotas that sealers can kill and yet sustain the health of the herd. During this period, we have more than tripled the size of the herd.
The seals we hunt are fully weened and independent of their dames.
