No they don’t kill the whitecoat seal pups

Whitecoat seal - Canwest News Service The annual seal hunt has begun, and of course the newspapers are featuring pictures of whitecoat seal pups, despite that fact that, as I mentioned in a previous post, the whitecoat pups cannot be harvested.

My prediction is that before the end of the seal hunt, the number of photos of whitecoat pups prominently featured in news stories by Canwest News Service and other media will outnumber photos of legally harvestable seals by a ratio of 10 to 1.
