From the immemorial the Inuit have had to feed of the things that the sea gave them, because in the frozen land permanently, its no possible to cultivate and therefore having cattle either. So, seal hunt and fishing are practically, the only ways of subsistence for these Inuit villages to feed their families and their dogsleds.
Seals are not an endangered species. The traditional seal hunt by the Inuit village is under control by the government and biologists for the maintenance of the species. Without seals the Inuit cannot feeding their dogsled which are their mean of transport that they use to get food in the frozen sea. So, the Inuit have to hunt seals to keep their traditional way to live.
Although its true that packaged dog food exists, in Greenland is so expensive that many Inuit cannot feed his dogsled only with this type of food, so they have to hunt, like their ancestors have had thousands years ago.
Its not easy to see a beautiful animal without life, but you have to understand that for the Inuit, seals, are like a farm animal and they need them for survive in the most inhospitable lands of the planet.
