Russia Bans Canadian Seal Imports!
DECEMBER 21, 2011
But I'm not exactly sure why RUSSIA would ban them. Apparently, some claim about 90 percent of Canadian sales are to Russia. 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. Great news!
