Canada, STOP THE SEAL HUNT!

 

harp-seal_1372772c

So far, as of April 28th, the offi­cial num­ber of harp seal pups who have been killed from the Cana­dian Depart­ment of Fish­eries and Oceans is 35,049.” (Read more info on harpseals.org)

The mass killing of these baby seals in March and April every year is bru­tal, unnec­es­sary, and, for all the cap­i­tal­ist thinkers out there, not even eco­nom­i­cally beneficial!

This info-graphic gives you the quick facts:

Just because we don’t see this hap­pen­ing in front of us, doesn’t mean we don’t have a respon­si­bil­ity as cit­i­zens to call our coun­try to put an end to it.

Watch Rebecca Ald­worth of Humane Soci­ety Inter­na­tional off the coast of New­found­land a few weeks ago.

 

As a Cana­dian, I’m embar­rassed that we are so behind the rest of the world. Please, stop this sense­less killing.

The Ethics of Research!

Just wanted to share this very inter­est­ing arti­cle on ani­mal test­ing fea­tured in The Times of Israel by Shamayim V’Aretz Insti­tute founder and CEO, Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz.

Banksy takes NYC by storm with his piece Sirens of the Lambs

British graf­fiti artist, Banksy, com­ments on the hor­rors of the meat indus­try with his recent art piece Sirens of the Lambs in which he sent a slaugh­ter­house trans­port truck full of scream­ing stuffed ani­mals dri­ving around NYC’s meat­pack­ing dis­trict.
A genius idea and a very effec­tive piece of art in our opin­ion here at Oy Vegan.


It’s this type of cre­ativ­ity that makes peo­ple stop and think. Way to go, Banksy!
