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.
