Reports show sealers dumped approx 6000 seal skins in the sea

In a new shocking revelation about the cruel Canadian commercial seal hunt, it is reported that Madeleine Islands' sealers have dumped some 6000 seal skins in the sea over recent years due to lack of demand.

Despite the fact that seal skins can no longer be processed on the islands, sealers seem determined to keep killing seals - despite the EU ban on the sale of seal products.

When will the sealers realise that their cruel annual hunt is not wanted by the rest of the world and they should stop?
