Shooting seals

I’ve heard a rumour there might be some welcome news on seals very soon. Might be related to this campaign? Don’t know.

Have to admit, despite my involvement in campaigning against seal clubbing, I had no idea that it was deemed OK to shoot seals in Scotland. There’s a campaign to end this slaughter in the Marine Bill for Scotland, which is sister legislation (if such a concept exists) to the Marine and Coastal Access Bill announced in the Queen’s Speech. Need to check out the extent to which it’s a devolved matter, but certainly seems to be almost totally a Scottish issue. Here’s some more info from Protect our Seals, including details of their ‘seal friendly salmon’ campaign.

And of course, it’s an excuse to include a cute photo.
