Leona Lewis speaks out against Namibia seal hunt

Avid animal rights activist and British pop singer Leona Lewis has called on Namibia government officials to end the seal hunting in the country.

Recent reports have suggested there has been an increase in the vicious practice across the country and the “Bleeding Love” star hopes that the excessive killings can come to an end.

The staunch animal rights campaigner has now released a statement urging the nation’s government ministers to investigate the matter, noting that the cruelty-free seal-watching industry is actually more profitable for Namibian economy.

“No price would ever be high enough to justify the killing of these harmless animals. This country has so much natural beauty to offer tourists, why allow this brutal practice to tarnish its reputation forever?” she said.

This isn’t the first time Lewis has used her star power to raise awareness about animal cruelty. Last year, the vegetarian and World Society for the Protection of Animals spokesperson visited a sanctuary in Romania, which houses abused bears, in an effort to bring awareness to their plight.
