European Union Moves Toward Ban on Seal Product Trade
Source: Humane Society International

In 2006, Swedish Green MEP Carl Schlyter observed the Canadian commercial seal hunt with Humane Society International.

Shortly thereafter, he sponsored a Written Declaration in the European Parliament, calling for an EU ban on the sale of seal fur pelts and other seal products in all 27 EU-member nations.

The Written Declaration was passed with the endorsement of 425 Members of the European Parliament, a record level of support.

1. Wow, any word on whether sales of Heidi Klum's products will be affected?
They just had their third child recently.

2. Thank you, Humane Society and the EU. Canada needs to put a total
stop to this miserable and cruel practice. I will never visit there unless they do; I shall avoid their products and give to the Humane Society.
