Anti-sealing protesters say they've been forced to leave hunt off N.L.


at 17:37 on April 14, 2006, EST.

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. (CP) - An animal rights group documenting the annual seal slaughter off southern Labrador pulled out Friday, saying protesters felt threatened after confrontations with local hunt supporters.

They left as the kill ended for most large vessels and at least one fleet of smaller sealing boats, when hunters filled about two-thirds of their quota.

A spokeswoman for the International Fund for Animal Welfare said a helicopter carrying anti-sealing activists was confronted a day earlier while trying to refuel in the Labrador community of Cartwright.

Continued from yesterdays.....

I picked this story up this morning on the TV news from CTV but this is much more detailed. Canadian Press story on the events at Blanc-Sablon tell a tale of some citizens that are fed up with the celebrity-media circus and the animal rights clowns who have been interfering in the business of the community.

Click on the title above to link into the CP story as posted by Shaw News.....

Excerpt below:

"Seal hunt supporters in Quebec and Labrador confront animal-rights protesters"

"BLANC-SABLON, Que. (CP) - Supporters of Canada's East Coast seal hunt made life miserable, and potentially dangerous, for animal rights activists who insisted Thursday they were only trying to document the start of the annual slaughter off the coast of southern Labrador.

About 40 residents in the eastern Quebec town of Blanc-Sablon, near the Labrador border, surrounded a small hotel when they learned that journalists and members of the Humane Society of the United States were staying there. "


More whining and outright lies from the Animal Rights Crowd in the story eh!

I'm particularly impressed by the comment from John Grandy, senior vice-president with the Humane Society...."Canada should be ashamed," he said!

Hell No John ....We are very proud that these people are standing up to your Bullying.......
You self important asshole!

Good for you Blanc - Sablon !

It's not only Canada who should be ashamed it's the entire human population who think that we can make other living things and their lives our commodity.

"More whining and outright lies from the Animal Rights Crowd in the story eh!"

No, it's not more whining, it's standing up against outright murder.

"I'm Actually Quite Proud of Our Friends in Blanc-Sablon"

"Supporters of Canada's East Coast seal hunt made life miserable, and potentially dangerous, for animal rights activists..."

Yeah, let's be proud of people who make life potential dangerous for other (not to mention the seals of course.)

I'm actually proud of the Humane Society for showing up there.

Check out the April 10 issue of Maclean's, which has a great article called "The Good Hunt". The best coverage of this issue I've seen from the MSM. It even includes a picture of a Newfoundlander bottling seal meat, a time-honoured, "eat locally and sustainably" tradition.

The anti-hunt rich celebrity crowd wish to use mistruths: "It's all about barbarians clubbing babies for fur!"

In reality, it's economic necessity under strict government quotas (they can take less than 20% of the population). It results in food, clothing and Omega 3 capsules.

Pamela Anderson was asked what she would've said to an Inuit woman who wore a traditional sealskin dress to get her Juno at last year's ceremony. Her response: "My dress is really small and more synthetic than my boobs"

Petakid please prove, with medical journals and evidence to back your claim, that human beings are a species designed to be vegan.

Next prove that we are no different from all other animals and that the natural order of the world does not exist (you know that thing called the food chain they tried to teach you in school), if you think that we should be exempt from interaction with all those fuzzy little animals then prove why we should be exempt. After all we are part of the world and animals, so why should we not be part of that world?

Do these and we'll see if we can debate this here.

Thanks :)

Peta,
Although you think my grandpa is a murderer, I wish you could have met him, what a kind and loving man who struggled so hard to provide for his family in very harsh and remote conditions.

Thank you for bypassing all the normal BS extreme animal rights activists bring up to cloud the issues.
You simply believe that animals and humans are the same and that the destruction of an unorn baby or someones grandpa is the same as killing a cow,pig, chicken or seal.
Obviously I disagree but it is so refreshing to see an extreme animal rights activist not getting on with BS about the method of killing, statistics,,, blah blah blah blah blah blah when the only real issue is their belief that animals and humans are exactly the same, thus all the other debates are meaningless.

I hope that at the very least you stick to the underlying argument,, that killing an animal is the same as a human,,, instead of trying to mislead people with secondary BS.

I hope you are open and tolerant enough (despite your belief that all who kill animals are murderers) to debate Ben on the fundamental issues which he raised.

Angela, Ben, Sealhunterskid, and yes you Peta Kid.

Thanks for taking this up.
Although I doubt that PK will bother to be back.... but who knows?

Anyway events have moved on and the Big Business ( charitable donation ripoff scammers ) and media clowns have moved on.

Thanks again to the citizens of Canada who stood up to those insufferable press junkies and gave them a taste of their own medicine.
Damn I am proud of them!

Funny how self-righteous the seal hunt protesters got when the citizens protests against them. How dare the locals interfere with their "Right To Tell Us All How To Live Our Lives"!!

Good for the locals!
