two major resons: simply emotional, because I am a human being with
totally irrelevant priorities and secondly because certain animals are
endangered and should be protected. I am not such much against
the killing of the seals (if they really are present in such abundance
as the post suggests, which I doubt) as to the economic arguments put
forward in your and the previous post. True: most vegetarians where
leader shoes: still they do more for animal welfare than you and your
fellow countrymen do....
