karenmokThe Hong Kong fur industry has gone after popular singer-actress Karen Mok and her plans to visit Canada Friday to shoot a mini-documentary on the annual seal hunt. The Asian star, who has appeared in the movies Shaolin Soccer and Around the World in 80 Days, is making the trip on behalf of the Hong Kong Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and the Humane Society International (HSI). From the article,

“Timothy Everest, spokesman of the Hong Kong Fur Federation, said he did not know any manufacturer in Hong Kong that used seal in its collections. “She is lovely lady and she could be doing an awful lot for charities for deprived or handicapped children, rather than being manipulated by the animal rights people.” He said the cull was carried under the control of the Canadian government to manage the population of seals which stood at a healthy 6.5 to 7 million but would exhaust the supply of the world’s fish if left to multiply.”

Anyone else laughing out loud? To think that seals would ravage the world’s fish supply if humans didn’t bash them over the heads every year is just hilarious. Methinks it may have something more to do with our own unsustainable overfishing than seals. BUT WAIT! Here’s another great quote:

“The fur trade is a legitimate trade and first and foremost our concern is animal welfare.”

Are you kidding me? Do fur companies really believe this? All this time, I thought money was their first concern…

Needless to say, Karen Mok is headed to Canada and we look forward to seeing her mini-documentary. To learn more about the Canadian Seal Hunt, jump here.

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
