Noted !! Petition signed and commented !! Not only is this appalling (for the seals) but it is proof of stupidity by Namiba. Elsewhere it has been proved that killing seals will NOT increase fish stocks and so is pointless !! In addition Namibia relies highly on tourism ........ this will rapidly dry-up once the word gets out ..... this information needs to go VIRALE to make Namibia understand they are ruining their future whilst "indulging" in this senseless MASSACRE !!!!!!! Thanks Teresa for the link !!

Signed noted and reposted. Slaughtering murdering bastards. So sick of the human race - I hope for really horrible violent ends for these monsters. But worse still are the creeping hypocritical freaks who create a demand for seal body parts and skins - they should all be beaten to a pulp and left in the gutter where they belong.

How tragic! These seals could be driven to extinction if this horrific and heinous hunt isn't stopped soon! And with all of the other factors such as pollution, starvation, and global warming that are driving the Cape fur seals to extinction, they are still permitting this? How barbaric and ignorant this govt. is!
"The ‘cull’ is driven by only one man, Hatem Yavuz, who has the contract to buy every skin resulting from the Namibian seal slaughter until 2019. He pays $3 per pelt but will eventually sell his fur coats for as much as $30,000." This man would sell his soul to the devil for money! This hunt casts such shame on the Namibia govt. and its total disrespect for wildlife and important ecosystems.

"A new economic study has confirmed the seals are worth three times as much alive rather than dead. In 2008, the seal hunt generated only £320,000, a poor comparison to seal watching which netted £1.3 million in direct tourism expenditure in the same period.”

This Country needs to wake up and stop their decimation of these seals because of one man who is benefitting from such cruelty and the horrible slaughter of these baby and bull seals. How sordid he is!

Also shame on the DeBeers Company! Sealing occurs on two mainland colonies, Cape Cross and Wolf/Atlas Bay on the DeBeers company property, where 75 percent of the pups are born.
"The cull occurs in Cape Cross Seal Reserve. The reserve is the home of one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals in the world. Reserve implies seals are protected – they are not.”

The DeBeers Company could step in here and now allow hunting on their property! Please everyone boycott DeBeers diamonds and everything else that they manufacture or their greedy company is a part of!

signed. DeBeers boycott sounds good to me. Never did like diamonds over colored stones. It just doesn't make sense to pay a fortune on a piece of jewelry when you could use it for something more practical. But then that's just me.
What we also need to do is stop knocking PETA. They have whether you agree with other things they have done, they have kept up with the anti fur campaigns. A person would have to live under a humongous rock not to be aware of seal/big cat killings to make a fur coat for some status minded woman to wear during winter society photo ops.

How can this go on and on and on and still it is not stopped? What is more powerful, the will of the people or the profiteers? How many are really fighting to end this hideousness? It makes me wonder. At first, I couldn't begin to conceive of such incredible evil, but now that the same evil has overtaken not only seal hunts but also farm animals and animals abroad, I can only shake my head in horror. Who is going to stop this? Who is going to demand that Mr. Harper bring seal hunting to a halt--because he certainly won't. Who?

The slaughter in Namibia takes place at this time of the yea, EVERY YEAR. Every morning, babies are stabbed and skinned alive. Just imagine the terror, the pain they are going through... it is sickening, fills me with rage too as I feel powerless. Please spread the word, tell ALL your friends to stop visiting Namibia until the government has decided against the annual killings...if they lose all tourism revenues, they might reconsider. Sad but true, as they don't respond to humane reasons, this is the only way to make pressure on Namibian government.
