28 April 2004, New York City We confronted it 1969, the year LIFE
headlined its photographs, "A bloody business in Canada causes an
uproar all over."
This Bloody Business is Still Going On. Canadian seal hunters have
just killed about 80% of their 2004 quota of 350,000 seal pups, thus
completing this season's main seal kill. They plan to start up again
in full force next spring. Will Prada continue to support this?
The hunt has adopted some "improvements" to silence critics: "Under
new guidelines," explains BBC News, "most seals are meant to be shot
and not clubbed to death in a bid to make the killing more humane."
Humane killing is a corrupt concept. Whether they raise clubs,
guns, or any other weapon against a seal, it's wrong and it must
Is Seal Fur "Back"?
Last season's hunt resulted in the export of over 60,000 raw seal
skins, nearly all to Norway, Denmark, and China. Birger Christensen
of Copenhagen promotes such labels as Prada and Dolce & Gabbana,
with seal skin coats starting around $2,000 USD. Both companies
used harp seal skin for the first time in their men's collection in
2001, with products including knapsacks, neckties, wallets, and
Activists Are Back. On Saturday, 1 May 2004, Friends of Animals,
Caring Activists Against Fur and supporters will gather from noon to
2 pm at Prada to ask the public to reject all fur products,
including those marketed by Prada. The New York Times recently
stated that "no designer exerts more influence on the rest of
fashion than Ms. Prada."
