You know, I could understand if you were hungry, but a "thrill kill" NO. And they're endangered to boot. I REALLY hope they catch the person(s) responsible and punish them.

Sea Shepherd has a ``Be an Eco-spy`` program. There are cash rewards for 4 different areas. One of them is for killing seals in Scotland. If anyone has information leading to an arrest, please contact Sea Shepherd.

This makes me so angry. The fishermen hate the seals because they have the nerve to eat a few of the fish that they want to catch. It doesn't seem to get through their ignorant, thick heads that the seals have more right to them than they do. They are the ones encroaching on the seals habitat.

Disgraceful and pathetic bastards. Want to shoot? Use a camera or a tin can, not animals, who struggle hard enough to exist anyway. TY Lone

It is likely tha some disgruntled fisherman, who should know better, has killed these animals blaming them for damaging the fish stocks!
