WINDHOEK, NAMIBIA (Jul 7, 2007)

Namibia's annual seal hunting season started this week amid a war of words with animal rights activists that echoes similar protests in Canada.

Namibia's government accused the activists of "deliberately distorting information," and said controlling the seal population was important for both the fishing industry and to the people who work in jobs created by the hunt.

The sparsely populated southern African country is famous for its wildlife and desert scenes along its Atlantic coastline, known as the Skeleton Coast. An estimated 850,000 seals live on a group of islands off its southern coast.
