    I was just browsing the internet a little while ago, and came upon this topic of the extermination of harp seals.

    I found this somewhat sad :( and questioned myself why someone would do something to such a nice looking animal.

    WHY THE SLAUGHTER?
    Why Harp seals, one may ask?

    What is it about this particular species of animal that has made it the target of such an intense campaign of slaughter every year for hundreds of years?

    The answer is complex and varies depending on the time of history being discussed.

    The exploitation and commercial slaughter of the harp seal is one of the most tragic stories ever known to mankind, and in particular, to people who care about such things. Before the advent of "modern technology" and hunting methods, the harp seal was an honored animal playing an invaluable role in the very existance of human beings on the eastern seaboard of Canada. Fur, meat, and bone were utilized in every conceivable fashion by the native peoples and were necessary for sustaining daily life in the arctic...

    the people pretending they dont care think theyre tough cause they dont feel bad for an animal. stop thinking youre so cool.

    it doesnt matter if theyve done anything for you. youve never done anything for me and i wouldnt kill you. stop acting tough.

    Aww, let's cry because it's just a new animal people kill. They kill cows, and chickens, and you don't give a ---- about that, because you're used to it. I bet all of you who are trying to be emotional about this have had chicken, or steak, or another product coming from a dead animal. There are alot of animals that are killed for human benefit, survival of the fittest, you're just going to decide to care for a seal? Wow...
