According to the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans, 32,102 harp seal pups were killed. In just one day early in April, 5,558 seal pups were killed.
In 2018, the official number of seals "landed" was 59,148, but this figure does not include seals who were "struck and lost" (i.e., injured seals who got away).This figure does include a "secret" number of adult seals, at most 11,654, who were killed between January and April 12, the first day of the seal pup slaughter.
On the second day of the harp seal pup slaughter 5,409 seal pups, who were most likely born some time in March, were "landed" - so more than this number were likely killed. In the next two days, 13,398 harp seal pups were "landed." These seals were killed by a few hundred off-season commercial fishermen in Atlantic Canada, not by Inuit. These fishermen club and shoot harp seal pups each year in their nurseries on the ice floes in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and just as they are learning to swim off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Almost all of the harp seals killed are pups between 3 weeks and 3 months of age.
This slaughter is not only approved by Canada's government, the government promotes, subsidizes, and facilitates this slaughter.
