Screw Russia and the seal movement any fool will tell you that the island is well populated with seals, just as many seals as there is moose, and how do you expect the cod stocks to grow when we are overpopulated with seals!! Screw the goverment and anyone who promotes the seal movement!!!

Some facts: The sustainable harvesting of a relatively small percentage of the adult seal population is done humanely and ensures diversity and the future of the seal population for generations to come. The 100% wholesale slaughter of inbred cattle, bred only for the purposes of consumption, without any opportunity to diversify the gene pool and ensure the future of wild cattle should be of paramount concern. Difference: one is conducted publicly on fresh, white snow; the other is done behind closed doors where the blood is drained out of public sight, yet it is just as red, and flows in far greater quantities. One is cute; the other is, arguably, not. The cute one lines coffers of questionable organizations; the other continues to operate profitably and relatively unopposed. Take the blinders off and see the issue for what it is: a money-generator for Greenpeace, IFAW, etc.

"Pinhorn insists seals still need to be harvested, adding improvements have been made to educate sealers on the proper technique for humanely hunting them." So sealers have not been using the proper "technique" to kill a seal. The suffering will stop with Russia's ban. I support the payout to sealers for their license. A good move for all.

Way to go Russia. These seal hunters need to find a real, dignified job once and for all.

In a way, I'd like to see the hunt close down - that way Aldworth and her ilk would have to either find other means to bilk unsuspecting people of their hard-earned savings or go out and find a real job that contributes meaningfully to society.
