Bloody Hell

‘CLUBBING holidays are nothing new, but most people head for Ibiza or Greece rather than Norway.

Wish you were here

That’s all about to change, however, because Nor Safari is offering a new kind of clubbing experience – clubbing seals to death as part of an expanded annual cull.

For £110 a day you are guaranteed to kill at least one seal.

(NB: If you are infirm or inexperienced, you could probably finish off a badly injured pup or one of the really decrepit adults that can’t move so well.)

“We will make sure your hunt is one not soon forgotten,” promises the brochure.

Needless to say, the British papers are not keen on the idea.

The Mirror reminds us that back in 1968 it ran a front-page story about the culls, and it finds it extraordinary that anyone would want to spend their holiday in this way.

“Tourists should be encouraged to enjoy and protect animals in their natural habitat rather than kill them,” says Gill Sanders of the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

The Mail says that the company could no be contacted, but there were reports of inquiries from France, Germany and Britain.’
