Anti-Hunter Pilots Chopper to Disrupt Hunt- (04/09)

A Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) employee is under investigation by the Canada Department of Fisheries and Oceans for disrupting a 2007 seal hunt.

According to the Canadian Press, a HSUS helicopter pilot was reportedly scaring seals off of ice floes and into the water in an attempt to disrupt an April 5 seal hunt in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, west of Newfoundland.

“There were seal hunters in the area and the allegation is that the pilot flew his helicopter in a way that would disrupt the seal hunt,” said Department of Fisheries and Oceans spokesman Phil Jenkins.

“Anti-hunters claim to despise Canada’s seal hunt, but where would some groups be without it?” said USSA Senior Vice President Rick Story. “The seal hunt that so many groups supposedly abhor is an annual fundraiser that rakes in thousands of dollars for their organizations.”

The harp seal population is estimated at over five million and wildlife officials say the hunt is a humane, sustainable enterprise that benefits Canadian fishermen.
