Every year in Namibia, 86,000 Cape Fur Seal pups are butchered to death.
Namibia is the only southern hemisphere country where seals are commercially slaughtered and the only country in the world where slaughter of puppies still nursed by mothers is possible.
The cruel seal hunt is actually known only from Canada. And Canada has also resumed the bloody seal hunt, although demand for seal products has plummeted.
But even on another continent, seals are slaughtered by the thousands.
Between 80,000 and 100,000 dwarf fur seals, also known as eared seals, cavort at the Cape Cross on the rocks in Namibia.
Over the next four months, as we learn, thousands of seals living in Cape Cross and Atlas Bay are brutally killed for their fur, oil and genitals. The genitals are exported to Asia. The terrible bloodshed has already begun. The hunting season lasts 139 days from July to November.
The seal cubs are brutally hit on the head after being separated from their mothers. Under the cries of the mothers, they are stung, whether dead or not, in the neck and slashed with knives. By now 80,000 Robby babies are supposed to be.
The massacre of seals in Namibia is brutal for a number of reasons, including the method of killing and the effects that it has on the entire colony.
The sealers prevent the colony of seals from escaping into the sea. Seal hunters aim for bigger puppies and get away with the smaller, thinner ones – those with less chance of survival. This can weaken the long-term genetic vitality of the populations.
The puppies are killed mainly because of their fur, but also because of their bacon sold as a “food supplement”. The bones are made into pieces of jewelery and then sold with the fur as a luxury item in distant lands. To make a fur coat, it takes about 8 dead seals.
The butcher of Namibia – Hatem Yavuz
The Turkish-Australian fur trader Hatem Yavuz is one of the main licensees.
He controls 60 percent of the fur market in the world.
Hatem Yavuz, known as the butcher of Namibia, is the man responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of seals – both in Canada and Namibia, according to hesealsofnam.org.
This one man has the contract to turn their fur into so-called fashionable apparel. We had pictures of what’s going on but Google banned the page for it being too graphic.
The Turkish and Australian based company Hatem Yavuz named after the owner Hatem Yavuz controls roughly 60 percent of the world’s seal market and processes 130,000 seal pelts every year in his Istanbul factory. Yavuz also has a hand in the Canadian seal market and claims to be proud of what he does. In an interview that spurred a flurry of hate mail, Yavuz told “7 News” in Australia that “It’s a job. If I don’t do it, someone else is going to do it.” He is called the King of Seal Killers.
Yavuz is an Australian citizen and also has Turkish citizenship. He is honorary consul in Namibia for Turkey and has as a diplomat both a luxury vehicle and offices, which are paid by the Namibian taxpayer. As a Consul of Namibia, he is a government official and benefits directly from the sale of the country’s assets, according to the organization.
Yavuz pays about $ 7 per coat and needs the fur of about 8 dead seals.
Yavuz will sell this coat for $ 30,000. Enough money to buy an exclusive townhouse in Swakopmund, Namibia. However, this money does not remain in Namibia to help the economically disadvantaged. It goes to Yavuz, who rides between Sidney and Istanbul, leading the life of a multi-millionaire.
The fur is processed in his company in Turkey.
Yavuz controls 60 percent of the world’s fur market.
As Turkey is not part of the European Union, which prohibits the import and export of seal products, hides from Namibia are shipped to Turkey, where they are processed and sold to countries such as China and Russia.
My comment: I read in another website that this bloody spectacle is a popular tourist attraction.
If some dull, mentally ill proletarians can find it beautiful, get excited, and enjoy how innocent and utterly defenseless animals suffer and are tortured to death like this, then they are nothing more than pathetic monsters, and they do not deserve anything like their own human rights.
The Government of Namibia allows this. The Government of Australia, Turkey and Canada allows fur trade.
And if the butcher Hatem Yavuz says massacring innocent beings is just a job, then why is he no longer burning witches, or selling slaves? That would be good business too.
For this, all he needs to do is make an offer to the governments that they can not refuse.
