Russia Bans Canadian Seal Imports!
DECEMBER 21, 2011
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 and two of its neighbours have informed the World Trade Organization that they are banning the import and export of harp seal pelts – a move that animal-rights activists are celebrating as the death knell of Canada’s commercial seal industry.
