How did you come up with this 'fact'?

poison is often used. I can think of at least one case where drowning is an effective method. How about traps that catch an animal by the leg? In many of these cases of population control, the animal is simply discarded. At least here they have found a use for the seal.

If you use a housecat to regulate a mouse population, you are being way less humane than any sealer. You ever see what a cat does with a captured mouse? Not a quick death, go protest that.

Seals are like the rat of the atlantic ocean. The only reason they are getting this attention is these rats have big eyes. They affect cod and lobster stocks.

Is your main problem with this the fact that they are putting a steel spike into the rodents braincase instead of a bullet?
The seal is basically the rat of the atlantic ocean.

A rat with big, cute eyes.

Mr FB - so you trust governments and not people, people elect a government, worried about losing power if the truth comes out?

Even if one is on your side of the issue, I don't believe most want to glorify it, but you guys - NOOOOOO!

Maybe if you focused on ocean eucology, so many fish wouldn't be dying!

Angry....I would love to see you run these Canooks in the ground! Back me up!
Paul is probably against fishing too, since he is a VEGETARIAN and animal rights activist. Fishies included.


******disclamer******
If you are politically correct
don't read this post!!

Did I read that the less educated are the ones who largely depend on this disgusting practice? So basically it's the stupid ones who do this... and that makes this practice.....stupid maybe???

Lets see, maybe we should skin you and use your skin for coats or upholstry...whats the difference...I have no use for people who think like you. Oh, didn't Hitler do that?

But then again I understand a Canook needs to look for another resource besides dirt.

Seal Recipe

My Dad loved flipper pie and used to be among the first people at the water front in St. John's when the sealing ships arrived from the front. He was a very kind man who would not even kill a bee if it wandered into our home. (He would capture it in a bottle and return it to the outdoors.) To him eating seal meat was not different from eating beef or any other type of meat. Most Newfoundlanders feel the same way. Seal meat is an excellent source of protein and seals are not in danger of extinction.
