The seals also eat a lot of cod so if we are to get a rebound in the cod stockes seals need to be taken. But you don't see PETA hugging A cod fish.
I gess they arn't a cute as a furry little seal.

The Cod Stocks are pretty well done now Think The absence of a managed seal hunt will increase seal population to uncontrollable levels.

Hammer, LOL

I also agree, we have alot of problems with certain mammals and fish ducks that have to be dealt with before we have 4 or 5 more species on the endangered or extinct list.

You guys with the Seals - eating cod and salmon
We have way to many cormorants - eating pickeral and any other types of fish they can
And soon Bears - eating people,(if you ask me the cancellation of the spring bear hunt was a very bad idea and soon enough they will have no choice but to reinstate it ) if the government here dosent step up the hunting regs its gonna get nasty for bear -- human relations in the north.
In the Sudbury district this year the bear complaints are in the 10s of thousands and around my area there is a trap on every second street and the bears they do catch are somehow finding thier way back. So the relocation isnt actually working to great. I have a different bear in my yard every night, anyone else with this problem.

Strange group indeed. I'm from Newfoundland and my grandfather actually purchases/sells seal pelts, so I hear all kinds of crazy stuff that people try to pull. Funny thing though....they'll kick up all kinds of stink about the sealing industry which a lot people depend on for a living, but yet nobody mentions the Faroe Islands whale slaughter that takes place as merely a cultural event for the communities, or Britain's fox hunt. If it does get mentioned it's quickly avoided because the sealing industry is apparently the only one that is viewed as evil. eye roll

Disturbs me to no end.

Because eating seal is probably the equivalent of eating a your pet dog/cat to some people, haha. The seal numbers are actually quite high....the population of one herd was estimated at 5.5 million for 2008, and the total allowable catch (TAC) from that was 275,000.
