    From the article (which is conveniently ignored, even by the agenda driven author):

    “Seals are hunted mainly for their skin, fat and meat, but there has also been a market for omega-3 capsules containing seal oil.”

    Truth is, these animals continue to increase in numbers. throwing the eco system out of balance.

    All I see is references to outrage over vanity,

    No outrage for the people in Nambia that eat these seals to survive, as the Seals of Nam’s group threatens Adventure Travel and Trade Association (for the upcoming travel summit in Namibia in October); the Namibian embassy in the United States; the Henties Bay municipality; Namibian Ombudsman John Walters; the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources; and numerous other businesses, travel agencies,” to further their shallow campaign.

    Do you think Nambians are in it for vanity? Of course, only the shallow that get plenty to eat would!

    Let me put this situation into language even a vegan can understand.
    You live on the edge of the forest. You choose to live close to nature, and that’s a good thing. Nature is beautiful.
    You must survive, so you plan ahead and plant a garden to survive.
    You till and sow, planting for your future.
    Do you allow the deer and groundhogs to come in and eat the chutes as the emerge from the earth? Or, do you erect a fence to keep them from destroying your crop?! Allow he birds to pick the berries from your bushes? or place a net over them.
    Cull the seals, and feed people.
