So.......... after Canada, the biggest killers of baby seals are the Namibians (I had no idea that stretch of SW Africa even had seals)........

Anyway, it's OK - because they have an official 'quota'........... Bloody hell...........

The piece makes a farly obvious point, if people stopped buying the product, the culling/harvesting will drop.

Lets hear it clear :

The Namibian hunt is particularly cruel as it is targeted at seals of between seven and 10 months old, who are still nursing, Fink said. They are separated from their mothers and clubbed to death with wooden bats as they run toward the sea, she said.
