Ban on the trade of seal products goes into effect in European Union

Great news – The General Court of the European Union has lifted a suspension on the ban on the trade of seal products in the European Union.

This means a major source of the products derived from the cruel commercial seal hunts in locations such as Canada, Namibia and Norway will be cut – at least as a legal trade practice. The people who engage in this cruel practice and the countries that support it will probably try to overturn the ban, but hopefully compassion will prevail.

And who buys these products, knowing the terrible deaths the seals endure?

    “And who buys these products, knowing the terrible deaths the seals endure”? And the answer is: in Denmark, for instance, it is incredibly popular with seal fur coat.

      Yes, it’s sad to think there are still people who are so sick as to think they are “fashionable” because they wear a product manufactured through extreme cruelty to animals.
      There are garments on the market made from synthetic materials that are great alternatives to the cruelty industry.
      I guess there will always be people who are trailing behind and will never catch up.
