Some people from Canada hunt seals. Some other people do not like it. These people film the hunt.

The video shows how the people kill the seals. People hit the seals with something heavy. They put the seals on boats. Seventeen boats take part in the hunt. There were more boats in the past.

Canada supports the hunt. It says that it is OK. The hunt is important to some people. Canada says people can kill 400,000 seals.

Difficult words: hunt (to catch and kill), take part (do something), support (say that it is OK).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Is it OK to kill seals like this?
