Seals are not skinned alive
Patrice Simon, Biologist, Fisheries and Oceans Canada – The seals are not skinned alive. Several independent studies by European and Canadian veterinary researchers have concluded that the seals were indeed dead when they were skinned. They may sometimes still seem alive, because they have a reflex and continue to move following death. However, once again, these studies have concluded that what's involved is merely a reflex, and that these animals are dead when they are skinned.
