Boycott Namibia over seal culling, South Africa?

As is usually the case with single-species animal campaigns, this profoundly misses the point. While most South Africans are eating animal flesh from animals that have been treated no better, animal advocates in South Africa are calling for a tourism boycott against Namibia over seal culling. When, oh when, will we make the connection, and expand our moral concern to all animals, including so-called “food” animals.
