Is this not truly a magnificent sight?



These are Cape Fur Seals. This pic was taken at Cape Fria in Namibia. Each year, 85 000 nursing pups are bludgeoned to death for their fur and an additional 6 000 adult bulls get shot so that their penises can be used to make an ineffective aphrodisiac. 


The corruption behind this slaughter is mind blowing. The SPCA in Namibia refuse to get involved, claiming that a seal (according to Namibian law) is not an animal. There is reason to believe diamonds from De Beers are being smuggled out in the corpses of these animals as 60% of the massacre takes place on a Government controlled diamond field. 


For further info, check out “The Seals of Nam” While Francois Hugo of the group “Seal Alert” has been at the forefront of the battle to end the cull for many years, The Seals of Nam approach seems to be helping swing the tide. They are pushing for international boycotts and attack Namibia with a holistic and multi pronged approach, including formal requests to the International Rugby Board to drop Namibia from the Rugby World Cup
