Seal Death Camp in Russia

Remember the Cat Death Camp in China posted previously on Neatorama? Here's something along the same line, for baby seals in Arkhangelsk, Russia:

Seal hunting is controversial, and there's a lot of propaganda coming from both sides. One says that there's nothing special with it, it's traditional and profitable, no big deal. The other claims it's particularly cruel, citing independent studies that show that almost 80% of sealers don't check if the seal is dead before skinning it, and that half of them get skinned alive. But regardless of where the truth lies, we think most people would minimally agree that the unnecessary suffering of sentient mammals with nervous systems similar to ours is bad, and that people who purchase products made from seals should know what their money buys so they can make an informed choice.

Food. That's all.
For you to believe in the whole "But regardless of where the truth lies, we think most people would minimally agree that the unnecessary suffering of sentient mammals with nervous systems similar to ours is bad" scheme is ridiculous.

If you ever get hungry for real, tell me then whether you have any political views or not. When you get hungry, it's just a matter of survival. You get hungry, you hunt, you eat. End of story.
Seal hunting and skinning is a part of their culture - there is nothing wrong.

Why, when people start talking about human population, the first response is always, "So go kill yourself!" The easier solution would be to have fewer babies, but that gets the religious knickers in a knot, I guess.

As far as the original topic goes, I wouldn't eat seal meat or wear seal fur. I don't want to deprive people of a way to make a living, either. I just wish they would use more humane methods. In this day and age, there's really no excuse for skinning a seal while it's still alive.

seals are the equivelent of deer in their habitat. they reproduce quickly, eat EVERYTHING, and make good leather goods.

i heard seal meat tastes good when smoked properly.

I think Sean may speak a little above you, so I've translated so that you can understand:
You're a dumbass, go kill your self.

Hope that helps!
