Paul Watson, parasite.

Can't say I gave two minutes of my life to actually read through this article. Yes, I watch the show, only to cheer for the Japanese and chuckle when the Sea Shepards fail. I'm sick of these animal activist businesses, because I see them only out for the money. What about the cow that was slaughtered for his cheeseburger? Whales, cows, chickens, seals, they're all the same! All highly regulated industries and none are breaking the law. Ugh.

The telegram sucks, why are you putting him on the front page or any page for that matter, I'm going to cancel my subscription if I don't start seeing the top news of the day on the front page, I have been getting the paper for 49 yrs. and lately it's getting pretty wimpy. Now today I see this lout on the front page a protector of furry little creatures I think not, more like a con man living off of his crimes playing on peoples emotions so he can live the life he wants to live.

Paul Watson owns and lives in a $15 million dollar penthouse apartment in New York City. All on the backs of our sealers.

Thank goodness we are all in agreement about this reprobate. Why isn't he back in the Scandanavian countries bothering them? Maybe because they blasted him and he is afraid. We should have done the same when he starteed to interfere with our seal hunt (nobody in govnt with the balls to do it). Refuse to give this guy any press and refuse to give him or any of his followers (like here last month) access to our port facilities. Now the reaction to that would be worth reading. There should be many more Newfoundlanders, like those who have passed comments here, challenge this louse and make life difficult for him and his cause. He is not as big as he thinks and his agressive manner can be challenged by many of us but like always he will run off and hide and leave the tough stuff to his lackies. He is simply a coward and a fraud.

"Non-violent aggression," like the time they launched acid onto the deck of a Japanese boat...

So why is The Telegram giving this pimp publicity?

"We’re an anti-poaching group so we intervene against illegal activities,” said Watson. What about the barberic treatment he afforded Newfoundland and Labrador Sealers over the years--a leagal hunt according to Provincial and National Law. What a farce this man is. He is the one breaking the law, having been conviced in courts of law in several jurisdictions. I suggest Watson not go over and fool around too much with the Iranians or the like, beacuse ha MAY not be treated as nice by the 'authorities' as is Canada.

This article is old. This man and his ship is presently under arrest in Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland.

As a former sealer from the days of the bnig ship hunt in the late 70's and early 80's and someone who participated in the last great hunt in 1982, this is one documentary I will not be watching.

It is and always has been all about the money with this joker.

I hope this story only appeared online. I certainly wouldn't want to see a tree killed to print a story about this waste of space of a human.
