Another year of seal butchering

One week ago the Canadian Government had opened the seal haunting season, allowing hunters to kill up to 275,000 young harp seals on the ice floes off Eastern Canada, 5000 more than 2007 despite their earlier promises of reducing this number.
As always in these cases I prefer to let the pictures speak for themeselves.
Once more a gallery from Reuters perfectly describes what's happening:

    I will not travel to Canada, nor do business in Canada because I feel strongly against this barbaric slaughtering. How can I take Canada seriously? It is the 21st CENTURY FOR GODSSAKE!!!!!!!!!

    This is such a shame for Canada. Shame. So disgusting. And yes, the world is disgusted. You are as bad as the feral Japanese Canada.
