Stop Clubbing Baby Seals

March 21, 2007

I’ve always thought the whole “stop clubbing baby seals” protests were pretty funny. I mean, do people really club baby seals? Well, apparently they do, and I’m not talking about one or two seals. Think more like 300,000 a year. And… the men doing the clubbing are getting upset about their reputation as savages.

From Scotsman News:

Mark Small is fed up with being portrayed as a bloodthirsty killer for his part in an annual cull in which about 300,000 young seals are shot or clubbed to death on ice floes off Canada’s east coast. 

“It gives you a terrible feeling as a human being,” said Small, a veteran hunter in the Atlantic province of Newfoundland. “We’re not a cruel, savage race that came out of the forest somewhere.”

Umm, buddy… you club 300,000 baby seals a year. What would you rather be referred to as? A group of guys with “good baseball swings?”

What an idiot.
