PETA Goes After Canada's Seal Hunt

PETA has launched a spoof site for the Vancouver Olympic Games over seal hunting. I criticize PETA a lot, but in this case I think they are right on the money. I hate the seal slaughter. I think it's barbaric and should be ended. You can go on and on about tradition, but just because something is old doesn't make it good. Slavery used to be a tradition in some societies.

I like Canada. I'm an American, but I grew up seeing Noltan Nash, the Beachcombers and Hockey Night in Canada on the TV. I think in cases like health care and good government, they do a better job then in the US. On environmental and animal issues, not so much. Whether it's dumping raw sewage out of Victoria BC into Puget Sound, to their lenient treatment in animal abuse cases, I just don't agree with some of the policies they have. Seal hunting is just plain wrong.

Here is a link to the site. Warning, they have video of seal clubbing (and it starts automatically when you go to the site).
