Austria votes to ban seal products!
Yet another country speaks out against Canada's cruel seal hunt!
Late yesterday, the Austrian parliament voted UNANIMOUSLY in support of a national ban on seal skins. In addition, the Austrian Minister for the Environment has stated that he will also work for a ban on the European-Union level.
In spite of the Canadian government's attempts to convince them otherwise (a large delegation having gone to Vienna just last month), the Austrian government has committed to closing their doors to the products of this slaughter. Read our press release here.
Congratulations Austria, and THANK YOU for taking this step towards ending Canada's commercial seal hunt!
