what kalimata says is true, the seal hunt is allowed because of the threat they pose to the fish (cod i guess) that people rely on. if it weren't for the damage the seal population could impose on the cod, the seal hunt would probably never happen.

I suppose change also demands funding terrorists and killing the vast majority of the animals that come into your care without even trying to find homes or real help for them? Because that's what PETA does. ------------- PETA is not a terrorist organization nor does it fund terrorism. Using the word "terrorism" for what PETA does insults anyone who has been the victim of terrorism. PETA is not the ASPCA. Yes they put dogs to sleep but so does your local pound. It sounds horrible on it`s face but what dog owner hasn`t been faced with the same prospect? Do the people who put down their own dog fall into your category of "dangerous and detrimental"? Perhaps understanding the `why`s` would change your opinion of PETA. You sound like an animal lover. PETA is too.

PETA is loud and obnoxious but big change demands it. I suppose change also demands funding terrorists and killing the vast majority of the animals that come into your care without even trying to find homes or real help for them? Because that's what PETA does. They are not just loud, or obnoxious. They are dangerous and detrimental to their own supposed cause.
As I said in an earlier post, there are a lot of wonderful organizations out there working to ensure animals are treated well. PETA is not one of them.

Screw PETA. Another example of that organization shooting off at the mouth without any facts.
Baby seals are not clubbed, it's illegal. That club by the way, is like a double-tap. The seals are shot dead, and then are clubbed to make sure, so as not to leave a living, severely wounded animal in pain.
The increased populations of seals in and around Newfoundland are causing problems with the already devastated Cod populations.
This is the livelihood for many people who would starve without the hunt. The seal populations are on the rise, and the hunt is sustainable.
You never seem to see PETA protesting about the mass slaughter of fish, or the snow crab trade. How about the poisoning of rats? That poo doesn`t work fast at all. Hypocrites and morons.
