Seal hunters expected to kill 234,000 Wednesday

ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland (AP) -- The final leg of Canada's contentious seal hunt moved to the ice floes off northeastern Newfoundland and Labrador on Wednesday, with sealers expected to slaughter another 234,000 harp seal pups in just one day.

Well, if they are taking 234,000 it ain'd like there's a shortage of the things.

If they was ugly, would you care?

Because seals have monetary value, they have been managed properly. There isn't a shortage.

Those baby seals have it coming.

See thats what the F i'm talking about.

I always hear how many baby seals have been clubbed or slaughtered.

But where's my baby seal coat? where's my baby seal car seats?

They obviously aren't killing enough.

I haven't ever even seen any seal products for sale.

Most of the seal skins get exported to Norway and Denmark.


In the Albertville (IIRC) Winter Olympics, the entire Danish team wore seal-skin coats to the opening ceremony.

When I was in Denmark last winter, I was totally planning on splurging and getting myself an nice seal coat or jacket.

Then I noticed that it was all women and incredibly flaming old gay guys that wore the seal jackets/coats.

It would be an AWESOME pimp coat!

I have an idea, I want to club a baby seal with an elephant tusk. Then maybe I can have a dolphin salad sandwich for lunch.



All from the back of your tiger. Which is also an aphrodisiac in parts of asia.

(seriously, why do they need aphrodisiacs, they multiply like rabbits)

Importation of seal skins, etc. into the US is forbidden and has been for quite a long time. Personally, I think that beating adolescent seals to death before they can defend themselves or get away is pretty f**ked up.

Baby seals are the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered animal you ever set eyes on!

Baby seals got a vicious streak a mile wide! They are Killers!

They've got huge, sharp-- eh-- they can leap about-- look at the bones!



Clubbing or the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch....it's your only hope.!!

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, 'O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that, with it, Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits in Thy mercy.'
And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats and large chu--
And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe the baby seal, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.'

I actually have a seal skin that one of my cats likes to lay on.



ETA: to add picture:



Ironically, I also have a cool Royal Copenhagen porcelain piece of an angry polar bear mauling a seal sitting on top of it.

(The scale might be a little off - my Maine Coon is a large cat, about 20 lbs)
