Default FURR IS DEAD:Sign Pam Andersonís Canadian Seal Petition

I'm usually not the most environmentally-friendly person in the world, so you may call me a hypocryt, but watching the movie on this link :
http://furisdead.com/feat-pampetitio...=peta_newsfeed really gave me a knot in my stomach.

The first text at the end of the video finally did it for me:
being heartbroken isn't enough

Hi Klaas,
We took out the predators, so we have to replace their function.

Starving to death is a lot worse, don't you think?

Besides, seal icone is used for all kinds of things. We have the market cornered!

Personally I don't have a problem with our using animal products. I do however think it would be better if they took the older animals after they had had a chance to breed and also a more humane method of slaughter would be an improvement.

Other than the cuteness factor, what's the difference between this and someone killing a pig to make bacon?

(says the life-long vegetarian!)

the main difference is, that to my best knowledge ,a pig has an intelligence comparable to a 4-year old child

Hi Dan,
Generally, a whack on the head is much more humane. Other choices would be:

Shooting (might thin out the poor hunters too )

Poison - indescriminant

Let them starve due to overpopulation - somewhat cruel and painful.

Land mines - a bit messy, indescriminant.

Run them over with snow mobiles - hard on the equipment, painful.

It's not a good situation, but the animals that kept them in check were trapped, shot and basically eliminated. One good whack to the head and the pain is over. TV crews generally show the worst situations for impact.

Anyone have a better solution? Remember too that it is not always a perfect world and sometimes you do what needs to be done, not what is popular.

What would these people be saying if the seals were allowed to starve?

Which makes it a significantly more intelligent animal than creatures like Pamela Anderson, Paul McCartney, Brigitte Bardot, et al. Stupid has-beens with nothing better to do.

Take care,
Doug

Default Re: Pigs

I work in packing plants sometimes (pigs). They come in live and leave in little chilled packages. One plant does from 6,000 to 8,000 a day. I work in all areas from the "farm", kill and right to waste.

The dogs love it when I go there. I smell great to them (dogs).

They come in screaming in the trucks. They can smell mass death and they are not stupid. They live in the barn for a couple days, then to the kill. They fight as they die. Some are ripped up pretty good. I will not describe it. Suffice to say I'm one of the few that can go there in our company. One other guy - rarely. Most guys blow chunks in the parking lot. It gets worse inside.

This is far more cruel than seal hunting. But then again, who wants to go hunting pigs? They stand a pretty good chance against a human. I'm sure the older seals know what's coming. It still must be done.
