Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

We all have our opinions on the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

That aside, this cartoon by Charlie Hebdo captures the senseless massacre of seals for their fur.

Tens of thousands of harp seals are killed for their fur during the annual Canadian slaughter – a hunt totally sanctioned by the Canadian government. This hunt starts in November and ends in May. It reaches its peak in March, shortly after the harp seal pups are born.

Legally, baby harp seals in Canada cannot be hunted until they begin to shed their white coats of fur.  However, this happens at a very young age so the pups are barely weaned before they are bludgeoned to death. This is no legal protection at all.

This is to thank the World Trade Organisation for upholding the European ban on all seal products  clapping-happy-smiley-emoticon.

    How any person can stand over a helpless creature (or any creature) and bludgeon it to death is utterly beyond my comprehension. Tragic utterly heartless. These people must be very dark souls indeed.
