Euro report slams Namibia seal hunt

2008-01-10 00:00

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has found "unacceptable cruelty" in the Namibian seal hunt in its recently released report on the animal welfare aspects of seal hunting and has called for the annual hunt to stop.

The Namibian seal hunt takes place near Cape Cross from July to November each year. In 2006, more than 77 000 seal pups were clubbed to death, while about 5 300 adult bulls were shot. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
