"Far more than 90 per cent of the Canadian seal hunt is unrelated to the native peoples. What we want to stop is that huge commercial market that is all about selling baby seal skins to Norway, where they become fashion items for the Russian and Chinese markets," said Dan Mathews, senior vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

That doesn't mean animal-rights activists approve of Inuit seal-hunting traditions. PETA today likened Jean's sampling of seal heart to "taking part in the beating of women in the Middle East because it is part of local practice".
