10 Acts Of Animal Cruelty People Still Debate

Whale Slaughter

Every year, hundreds or thousands of small whales and dolphins are slaughtered for their skins and oils. Japan is the biggest offender, though they recently changed their law to continue this act, despite worldwide protest.

Seal Clubbing

Seal hunting and clubbing has long garnered attention, as the young pups are being slaughtered. In Canada in 2006, for example, 365,000 harp seals were killed. They do have a law forbidding the slaughter of these animals until they have begun molting.
