This morning I was on the train on my way into work reading the Metro newspaper. I opened to a page that had a picture of seal, I'm thinking oh the article will talk all about how awesome seals are and that we have to save the seals or something. I WAS TOTALLY WRONG! The article wasn't about saving these beautiful water loving animals, it was all about how it is good to EAT them! Maybe I've watched too many kids movies where seals are the nice friendly animal with the cute eyes and the little flipper tail, or I've been to too many aquariums...but I just think it is absolutely horrible like the worst thing someone could ever do to eat seal. Imagine, you are sitting down at dinner, you look at your burger/piece of meat on your place in front of you, maybe you smile to the person next to you and laugh at a joke, you pick up your burger and take a bite. Mmmm this meat is good, only its a SEAL!! a pretty frolicky ar-ar-aring seal! Honestly I think I would be sick. So the article goes on to talk about how in Canada the parliamentarians all got together and ate a big meal of seal, in order to defy animals rights activists and the EU, who has banned the killing of seals. In support of something they call the annual hunt off Canada's east coast in March and April these government officials got together to stuff their faces with seal meat. Well, Canada may be beautiful but the people representing it are certainly not humaine and are on my list of the worst people I've ever heard of. In Greenland they are eating seal dogs....YUCK. Here's what Senator Celine Hervieux-Payette, the organizer of the meal said "We're sending a message to the European parliamentarians ... we want to say something so that opponents do not take to the floor with lies." (taken from the NY Metro) I don't know how there could be lies involved, you either eat seal or you don't.
