The Great Canadian Seal Hunt


The annual season for hunting seals is about to begin in Canada. I find this interesting that such an event occurs since Canada constantly seems to lord their moral superiority over their neighbor to the south. You mean that peaceful and tolerant Canada actually sanctions the clubbing and harpooning of seals? You bet it does!

Of course a number of celebrities who are not Canadian are complaining. I say if everyone would just give it a try once I bet they would change their mind about seal hunting. I myself have never fired a harpoon, but I bet it is quite exhilarating. The hunt this year is expected to take longer due to ice surfaces breaking up earlier and scattering the seals (damn effects of global warming), but this may give novices a chance to get into seal hunting. Perhaps you didn't even know it existed? Now you do, so plan your trip. Spring break is coming up soon. Why go to Disney Land when you can go to Canada for a seal hunt?

Might as well hunt them now, Global Warming will kill them off eventually anyway. Why have rotting seal corpses floating in the Artic Ocean when you can have them wrapped around the necks of over perfumed old ladies?

Further proof that no country is without its blackspots/skeletons in the closet. My only question with the cull is why use clubs? You would expect Canadians to use something more humane than that. What about one of those bolt guns they use on pigs at slaughterhouses? Any thoughts/suggestions?

I think something like this must be done as brutally as possible. Humane killing probably desensitizes us faster than out-right beatings. It's better to look these immoral beasts in the eye while you're killing them than to walk up to them and shoot them behind the ear. Wait, seals are like sharks, right? I just want to make sure they're not killing anything cute.

I think the only logical course of action is to kill everything that is going to die anyway if the benifits of killing it outwieght the costs of keeping it around. Apply this priciple universally and we have a PERFECTLY ORDERED SYSTEM.
