The Cruel Russian Seal Hunt

Not a 'Hunt' at All - but a Factory Farming Style Slaughter of Baby Seals


 

Protests to accompany baby seal hunt in Russia

Mar 15 2007 6:38PM

ARKHANGELSK. March 15 (Interfax) - The seal hunting campaign has been launched in Russia's Arkhangelsk region amid protests by animal advocacy groups.

Russia's Cruel Harp Seal SlaughterOne collective farm alone has a quota to capture 10,000 Greenland seal pups in the White Sea over 10-14 days.

A spokesman for the Beloye More farm told Interfax that all the animals will be held in open-air cages until they grow up a bit, after which they will be slaughtered.

Quotas are distributed by the international community every year.

Animal rights activists are to stage rallies in Arkhangelsk, Murmansk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don and Barnaul to protest the seal hunt.

Greenland seals give birth to their babies in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, off the Newfoundland coast in Canada, and in the White Sea in Russia in late February-early March.
