It’s official: The European Union doesn’t want to import the pelts—or any other parts—of slaughtered baby seals. Compassion has won out, and the EU’s historic ban on the sale of seal-derived products will remain in place, despite the seal slaughterers’ last-ditch attempt to stop it.

With basically an entire continent and countless kind people around the world boycotting products that come from bashed baby seals, we hope that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will finally realize that the seal slaughter is both inhumane and unprofitable. Let’s encourage him to finally put an end to Canada’s shameful seal slaughter!
