The killing of Cape Fur Seals

May 24, 2011 by Victoria Rowe 1 Comment

Each year, 85 000 CITES listed Cape Fur Seal pups get savagely beaten to death on the beaches of Namibia. A further 6 000 adult bull seals get shot at point blank range so that their penises may be used as an ineffective aphrodisiac. Not only are these animals an endangered species, but this is the largest slaughter of wildlife in Africa.

Sea Shepherd South Africa has partnered with Beauty Without Cruelty and Fur Free South Africa to fight this madness. We have secured the support of several South African celebrities, see some of their statements here:

We will be staging PEACEFUL demonstrations in protest of this annual massacre in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. You are invited to attend and to please inform others of these events. Details are as follows:
