Kinks Mason And His Trained Seal (No, Seriously!)
This comic, posted on Four Color Shadows, interested me for several reasons: 1) the name "Kinks" Mason 2) a trained seal sidekick, and 3) a story about stopping seal poachers from the 1940's. The story does not really get into the moral or environmental issues about clubbing baby seals to death for their fur. Instead, it has more of a law and order vibe, like "poaching is illegal and we should stop it." Of course, it could just be that the writers wanted to give "Battler," our hero's trained seal, the opportunity to enlist his fellow aquatic mammals' help in capturing the bad guys.
