Author Farley Mowat bails out anti-sealing protesters
Bail paid in 'doubloons' after coast guard 'pirate action': Watson

Having put up the bail for two anti-sealing protesters, Canadian author Farley Mowat vowed to help defend the men after what he called their "atrocious" arrests.

"I put up the bail and I will confirm now that I will use whatever resources I've got, monetary and otherwise, to defend them," the 86-year-old environmentalist told CBC News Monday afternoon.

He described the arrest of the skipper and first officer of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's vessel the Farley Mowat as a tactic by officials to keep them away from the Gulf of St. Lawrence until the end of the seal hunt. Posting bail for the two was the "right thing to do," Mowat said.

"I took out 5,000 $2 coins and that's what we're gonna pay the bail. They want cash, we'll give them cash. Doubloons. I think it's appropriate for their pirate action," Watson told CBC News earlier in Cape Breton.

The Canadian Press reported that half the bond was paid in 2,500 toonies. Watson told the news agency that the coins had to be counted twice, because Cape Breton court officials lost track and had to start over.
