The "cottage industry" of self-righteous, do-gooders attacking a viable and necessary industry is sickening. It's been scientifically proven that large seal populations devour fish stocks. The yearly seal harvest helps to regulate the seal population, which today, is seen in record numbers & getting larger every year. What's the problem with those who humanely harvest these creatures and economically support their families?

Actually, what is sickening is that you think you have the right to critize those who oppose the seal hunt for speaking its mind. No matter what you think, regardless if you are right or wrong, everyone has a right to advocate for what ever it wants. For example, I oppose the seal hunt because I want the fishery to die. Like you said, the seal population devours the fish stocks. So from my point of view, if we allow the seals to devour the fish stocks, then the fishery will die and the people in rural newfoundland will have to move to the city. I want this to happen because it is good for me since I own rental properties and businesss in St. John's. Plain and simple. So with that, I am happy that the seal hunt is in decline, and I will be making a point to donate some money to the Animal Rights activists because they are indirectly supporting my interests.
