Russia Bans Canadian Seal Imports!

Critter News

The other two neighbors that banned them are Kazakhstan and Belarus). Russia does have its own seal hunt, but apparently they banned killings of animals under one year old. I don't see what they get out of it, unless they want to impress Europe, which has already banned seal products. Russia has been the biggest market for the Canadian seal fur industry. And harp seals are the prime source of that fur. Great news!
