Maybe there is a grey seal angel after all. The annual grey seal hunt on Hay Island, off eastern Cape Breton, will not go ahead this year. This clubbing fest annually took place on a “protected” nature reserve in spite of the fact that the government had authorize the “fishermen” to blugeon 2,500 grey seals to death on Hay Island, a part of the protected Scaterie Island Wilderness Area off Cape Breton te gods have intervened.
All of you that have signed petitions or spoken out about protecting these seals around the world have helped save this baby. Thank you – Mother Nature
Seals are off limits to commercial seal hunters this year. Why?
The trucking companies that traditional hauled the slaughtered baby and adult seals to market refused to do it this year. Alleluia!! Also bad weather prevented the clubbers from taking off.
