Generally, the way the hunting is done is by hunters rounding up and separating very young seal pups from their mothers and bludgeoning them to death with spiked wooden clubs.

It’s truly horrific, yet Namibian authorities claim that the yearly mass slaughter is necessary because the seals would otherwise threaten their fish stocks if they were left alive to feed on fish. However, the very fact that the overwhelming majority of seals hunted are pups instead of bulls, and the fact that that number has exceeded the 85,000 limit before suggests another motive.

The seals are also the principal fare for the transient orca pods that move through there. Isn't that enough?
The fur looks way better on the seals. People please don't buy seal coats! Thanks.
