European Union Bans Trade in Seal Products / Respect for Animals Welcomes Historic Legislation
Speaking about the ban Paul said: "It’s really great news that will hopefully put an end to this trade in cruelty. The many people who have campaigned for a ban on this activity will be relieved and happy with this victory for the welfare of these beautiful creatures.
Understanding that some of the local people may not be happy with this development, I would love to think that there would be a switch in thinking and that they could offer tourists guided trips to this beautiful region and its unique animal life.”
Yesterday (5th May) the European Parliament voted by a large majority to ban the placing on the market of seal products throughout the 27 countries of the EU.

The little white puppy you will see as my avatar on that site, whose name is McCartney, is now being referred to as Bob, can’t bear to say the name out loud.
