The brutal massacre of Cape fur seals in Namibia is due to begin on 1 July

Harp seals are not the only pinniped victims of mass slaughter. Cape fur seals are also killed by the tens of thousands each year. Cape fur seal pups are massacred in Namibia from July to November. They are killed in so-called ‘seal reserves’, beach colonies where pups are born and nurse for up to a year.
