"Every year, the Canadian government says the cull will be humane," says 14-year-old Fiona Lee from Animal Aid. "But the reality is thousands are butchered in bloody massacres. How can murder be humane? It's not, therefore the cull has to be banned forever!" ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— Family Fun 443 Fun & Games 150 FOR THE LATEST GREEN NEWS p161 Write It!

She says: "Many do not die right away and there is evidence of some seals being skinned alive. Although it's illegal to kill baby seals, it is known that they are murdered for fur. "Far more seals are killed than are reported because many are shot whilst in water, only to escape to die later." ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— National Events 441 Music News 481 HAVE YOU TRIED DIGITISING? p170 Grite It!
