A baby seal walks into a bar.

I would take stories like this more seriously if I had not been traumatized as a teenager by uncontrollable laughter after watching a video of someone sneak up behind a seal sleeping on a beach, slap it, and then run like hell as the seal howled and waddled after them.

/fark me, I'm snickering right now just thinking about it

I assumed this was another article on seal clubbing in Canada.

For those who aren't aware, seals really do like to party, and the nightclub scene in places like Nunavut which caters to them is outlandish. Makes South Beach in Miami or Tel Aviv look like Fargo.

Once you involve the HSUS you lose all credibility with me. HSUS=PeTa.

Plus, who is stupid enough to piss off something that can take a bite out of you that easily like that.

I kill a lot of critters, but I would never torment the critters like that.

The article never mentioned the HSUS. It did however, mention the ASPCA. Big difference there.

You know, things like this are what remind me that when someone tells me, earnestly, that if women ran the world there would be never be any more violence I should laugh in their face. Women are human beings, just like men. Some portion of us, regardless of gender, are just straight up assholes. Like those two. Empathy is more important than gender.

For those not from San Diego this has been an ongoing problem/debate for nearly 2 decades now. People are pissed off because the (approximately) 130 miles of coastline aren't enough for everyone. This man made cove was in tented to be a children's area but it turned out to be an ideal spot for seals to pup but everyone wants this 50 yards of shoreline back. So the city has mandated that people must stay X number of feet away from the seals and I think now the beach is supposed to be completely closed at night but idiots like this keep farking with the seals. I hate people.

It's a farkin seal that took over a beach meant for people.

Why is it people are supposed to take a backseat to animals?
All the time, for whatever reason...the stupid animal wins.
I don't get it.

It's always been like that...always SHOULD be like that.
People who see it differently should go live in the farkin woods, jungles, waters...
Wherever their favorite animal lives...go live with them instead of other people.

No, the world would be pretty much the same as it is now. Men and women are both susceptible to greed, callousness, jealousy, hate, stupidity, temptation, abusivness, tribalism, etc.... I don't see how it would make much of a difference one way or another.

I think the point is that while animals may not be moral agents, they are still moral subjects, and as moral agents we need to look after moral subjects. Not to mention the whole fostering of sociopathic behaviour thing...

Not to worry!

I'm opening a seal sushi bar on that strip of beach.
Soon all problems will be taken care of.

seals will be gone, and people get delicious food, and can enjoy the beach again.

This is a little overblown. The women were clearly not trying to hurt the seals (if they even could), they were trying to shoo them off the beach. They are a huge nuisance, even if they are cute. If these seals were a family of possums, none of you would be saying shiat.


After watching a seal steal a salmon right off my hook, I instantly became the Orca whales biggest fan. Kill them all you beautiful batmen of the oceans!

OOPS!!!

"I really don't understand how someone can be deliberately cruel to an animal like that. It's really baffling," says Sharon Young, marine issues field director with the Humane Society of the United States. "They know it's illegal, they know it's wrong."

Sorry.
