EU has adopted partial ban of seal products

A Sea Shepherd news:

The European Union has delivered a strong message of mercy to the world's persecuted seal population. The European Commission adopted a proposal today to ban all products from seals killed inhumanely from import into European Union member nations.

EU Environmental Commissioner Stavros Dimas told reporters, "Seal products coming from countries which practice cruel hunting methods must not be allowed to enter the EU. The EU is committed to upholding high standards of animal welfare."
