A personal commitment to animal protection
Humane Society of the United States
A personal message from Heather and Paul McCartney
Dear Friend ,
For years, we have shared a personal commitment to
animal protection. Today we'd like to ask for your help in
supporting an issue that's deeply important to us -- stopping
Canada's massive seal hunt.
We have just returned from a trip to the seal nursery on the ice
floes in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada. We
walked on the ice among mother seals as they nursed their newborn
babies. There are no words to express how breathtaking the
landscape is, with nothing but ice and ocean as far as the eye can
see. The only sounds we heard were the wind and the cries of
the baby seals, calling out to their mothers.
But in just a few weeks, the boats will arrive, and
the cries of the baby seals will be those of terror and agony as
sealers clamber onto the ice with their clubs and guns. The
pristine white of the ice will be stained with the blood of
these baby seals, bludgeoned and shot to death so the sealers
can sell their skins to the fur industry.
Today, we desperately need your help to stop this slaughter.
We believe that if we all work together, we can
convince the Canadian government that now is the time to end the
hunt forever. That's why we are asking you to make as
generous a gift as you can to help The Humane Society of the United
States continue the fight to save Canada's baby seals.
Click here to make your gift today:
The HSUS's ProtectSeals campaign is bringing all
compassionate and humane-thinking citizens of the world together
to pressure the Canadian government to end this hunt forever.
Your donation will be used exclusively for the ProtectSeals
campaign and will enable The HSUS to send a team of experts,
journalists, and videographers to the ice so they can document the
hunt, exposing the hideous cruelty that the Canadian government
doesn't want the world to see.
We plan to make sure that the world knows what
happens on those isolated ice floes in the middle of the sea, and we
will not rest until the slaughter has ended forever. Please donate today:
