The Newfoundland Seal Hunt is one of the most controversial subjects surrounding Newfoundland each spring, as great numbers of pregnant harp seals gather on the ice flows to give birth. Concerned by allegations of ineffective management and inhumane killing methods, animal rights and conservation groups began a sustained campaign against the sealing industry. The Canadian government, which is responsible for seal harvesting, responded with more regulations and quotas to ensure the humane killing of harp and hooded seals, and survival of the herds.
There are numerous opinions on the seal hunt, so I will spare you mine. Instead, here are a few great links if you want more information:
I'm a girl from around the bay. A runner, mother, daughter, sister, wife, an average run of the mill Newfoundlander with an overly active imagination.
I spend my days making mistakes and then trying to fix them before I get caught.
My life is random!
