***Warning*** this story is graphic and tough to watch but I feel very strongly as does Iggy about that fact that this horrific Baby Seal "hunting" is still going on!
FULL PETA STORY HERE
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Iggy Pop is raising his voice against Canada's horrific seal slaughter. Each year, the Canadian government allows sealers to descend on the ice to club hundreds of thousands of seals to death and sell the animals' pelts on the international fur market.
Sealers routinely hook these fuzzy creatures in the eyes, cheeks, or mouth to avoid damaging their fur and then drag the animals across the ice.
The seal-hunters crush baby seals' skulls in with their clubs before they skin them. The Stooges' front man has joined forces with PETA to denounce the seal slaughter by starring in a public service announcement and spreading the word that "Canada's club scene sucks."
