I was very disappointed in your interview with the Fisheries Minister Gail Shea regarding the seal hunt (RE: "One Thing EU Seal Ban Can't Do is Stop the Seal Hunt: Shea," March 18). Shame on you for publishing misleading statements such as "We haven't killed a seal pup here in 20-some years." Use whatever terminology you want, but I fail to see the difference between bludgeoning a 10-day-old "whitecoat pup" and a 20-day-old "beater."
