Excerpt from the BBC (April 12th):

Commercial hunting of seals in Canada is back, and animal rights groups 
say it is bigger and more brutal than ever.Up to 350,000 seals are 
expected to be killed in this year's hunting season, which began last 
week. Activists say quotas have been upped to record levels because of 
growing demand from the fashion industries in Europe, Russia and China.
