Iggy Pop Slams Canada’s Seal Slaughter

Iggy Pop for PETA

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.”

Iggy shares his thoughts about this bloody business
with PETA and explains, “[T]he screams of horror from the animals that watch the first other ones be bludgeoned—they don’t even try to run. They don’t know what’s gonna hit ’em. I don’t think anyone who’d seen that would want to wear fur.” The U.S. and the
European Union have banned seal products, and many world leaders—including President
Barack Obama and His Holiness The Dalai Lama—have denounced the massacre. It’s time for Canada to wake up and trade
their cruelty for compassion!

The annual seal slaughter will continue unless
people like you speak out and take action to stop it, so please add your voice
to the global outcry against Canada’s shameful seal massacre. Please write
to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper as well as Canadian ambassadors
around the world and demand that they bring the massacre to an immediate end
