'Blood' drips from the head of a member of PETA dressed as a seal on September 16, 2009 in front of the Canadian Embassy during a protest against Canada's annual seal slaughter. On the day that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper meets with US President Barack Obama, PETA members, urged Harper to heed the call of world leaders�including Obama and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin�to end Canada's annual seal slaughter. The 'seals' writhed on the ground in order to illustrate what happens to tens of thousands of harp seals�most of whom are pups�on the ice floes off Newfoundland and Labrador every year. Other PETA members held signs that read, 'Harper: Stop the Seal Slaughter.' PETA's campaign against the massacre will continue up to and through the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
