Sir Paul Blows It

Seal hunt quota raised

Just two weeks after megastar Paul McCartney made a high-profile appeal to end the slaughter of seal pups, the federal government has announced new, higher quotas for this year's hunt off the East Coast.

Federal Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn said Canada's harp seal population is thriving and can easily support a catch limit of 325,000 seals, plus 10,000 more for aboriginal communities.

The limit last year was 320,000 seals. More @ Globe & Mail

My only question is where do we get us some seal meat and some trendy seal skin mitties?
