Worldwide Protests Against Canadian Seal Hunt

 
On Tuesday, March 15, In Defense of Animals (IDA) joined dozens of animal and environmental protection groups in a massive worldwide protest of the annual Canadian seal slaughter scheduled to begin just days from now.

Demonstrations were held in 50 cities in twenty-eight countries, including four Canadian provinces. Read More with Photos
