Pamela Anderson Urges China To Ban Seal Imports

On behalf of PETA, Pamela Anderson has fired off a letter to China’s minister of land and resources, Xu Shaoshi, urging him to join other nations¬† in banning the import of seal products.

“Please don’t allow China to become a dumping ground for seal meat and oil products that even Canadians don’t want,” the letter said.

Back in January, China agreed to open its markets to products from Canada’s annual seal hunt. Since the European Union ban several years ago, the industry has struggled to regain profits from earlier days. For 2011, quotas have been set at 468,200 of harp, grey and hooded seals. Those numbers are the highest set since the Canadian government introduced quota management in 1971.

“If you witnessed this massacre, I’m sure that you’d have a change of heart about importing seal products into China,” writes Anderson.

Since China has pretty dismal human and animal rights to begin with, I’m not sure there’s much heart there to change. Naturally, the Chinese government has yet to respond to Anderson’s letter.
