I normally love to watch the news, but lately all you see are the anti-seal hunter people. There is nothing that makes my blood boil faster than people protesting and not having all the facts. The part that drives me even MORE crazy is that this is has been going on for as long as I can recall. You see these fools all over the news, crying about how inhumane it is to harvest seals. The poor little white coat pups with the big puppy dog eyes. FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY. Hunting seal pups is illegal, it has been since the late 80's. The latest one I heard that really made me laugh out loud is how there are seal carcuses rotting on the ice. I live in the North AND around lots of ice (hell, we drive on the ice here there is so much of it), I see lots of skidoos, dogs and people, but not one seal. Seal hunting in the north is a way of life. The entire animal is used. I will end up with a pair of seal skin mittens, and will wear them proudly knowing that I have purchased quality workmanship from a hard working person. I would LOVE to see some of these "oh the poor seal" protesters come up and spend a day in the North with a sealer, or on a boat with some Newfoundland sealers. They will see how the animals are not "beaten to death", but hunted in the most humane way. I am also sure the last time Rob and Adam went hunting rabbit and deer (which I personally think are much cuter than seals) they were not followed by protesters in choppers. Really people, know your facts before you make a fool of yourself on televison.
