Namibia Seal Hunt Facts

While the world appears to have lost interest in the Namibian seal hunt and activists eyes have turned to Taiji, we remind our followers that the brutality of the worlds cruelest mass slaughter is not over yet. Indeed, there are still another two weeks of hell to go for the largest slaughter of wildlife in Africa.

Namibia seal slaughter. Sustainable?

By this stage, and after the daily disturbance and five months of “hunting” there are very few pups left in the colonies. 80 000 of them have been brutally clubbed to death by uneducated, impoverished men who are so desperate for employment that they do not realise the extent to which they are being exploited. The rest have fled.

Panicked and desperate to escape the unimaginable cruelty, many of these cubs, who have been forcibly separated from their mothers, will drown at sea. Others will wash up along beaches, hundreds of miles from their home; lost, starving, terrified and confused.

The lucky few may be rescued by charitable organizations. Others will be attacked by dogs, tormented by onlookers or be battered to death on the jagged rocks in rough and stormy seas. This is their grim reality and these facts about Namibia cannot be disputed.

But, those responsible have not yet satisfied their lust for blood and the seaside orgy of violence is not over. Instead, they will now turn their perverse intentions to the adult bull seals. Up to 6 000 of these gentle and intelligent creatures will be shot in the face from a point blank range.

The reason is as diabolical as it is iniquitous. These animals, which are related to dogs, will have their lives taken so that their penises can be shipped to the East. There they will be used as an ingredient to make useless sex tonics and mumbo-jumbo potions.

By fraudulently promoting seal penis as a sexual stimulant, Namibia fuels an illegal trade in animal body parts for fake medicines. What difference is there between this country and those that promote medicinal benefits of rhino horn?
