So the clubbing of baby seals should be allowed even though non-violent alternatives are available.
Is that your point?

"Inuit in the Canadian Arctic hunt adult ringed seals, which are taken over the course of the year. A multi-day hunting trip might result in a catch of a few animals that are used primarily for food. This is far removed from Canada’s East coast hunt, which in a matter of a few weeks slaughters tens or hundreds of thousands of newly-weaned harp seal pups less than three months old for their fur.
IFAW does not oppose the killing of seals for food, clothing and other products for local use by indigenous peoples." https://www.ifaw.org/united-states/our-work/seals/...
Who told you otherwise? YouTube has some interesting videos of Inuits hunting seals.
