*About A Sealed Fate?: *A film by Nigel Barker—professional photographer and
one of The HSUS's top spokespersons—that chronicles Nigel's two trips to
Atlantic Canada this year with his team and with HSUS staff—the first before
the hunt started where he showed the world through his pictures this open-air
nursery and the majesty of the seals and the seascape, and the second to
broadcast images of the hunt itself. The biopic subtly conveys how this
slaughter of a quarter of a million or more seals really exists because of
stubbornness and inertia, not because of its contribution to the economy and
certainly not its role in managing marine mammal or fish populations. It's
just animal abuse, bound up with tradition, and it will only end when Canada,
Americans, and Europeans make enough of a clamor and exert enough influence
to shut it down.
