Unbelievable, I hope no-one abuses these seals. I read in CA they were caught kicking them. Why in the world would they think that's fun?? No passion.

What sort of low-life mentality's first response upon seeing a defenseless and suffering baby anything is to kick it?! Even most mentally challenged brains have the ability to express compassion.

Man has poisoned the waters a little more quickly, perhaps, than he is poisoning himself.
