There Is A Special Place Waiting For This Guy

Some of you may have seen this story. I doubt it made the national news but I know you're all awesome people many of whom like animals so I'm going to share.

A Fisherman frustrated by the face that a seal kept stealing his fish decided that the most rational and mature action he could take (not to mention kind) was to shoot it in the face. Luckily the person who was fishing with him turned him in. I believe there was also another witness who called the police.

The good news and reason I decided to post this is a lady we work with volunteers at the Marnie Mammal Centre and reports that the seal is healing. They are not sure if he will ever be well enough to be returned to the wild but they are hopeful. In any case his prognosis is good and he's eating forty pounds of fish a day.

Here are a few links to news stories related to this if you'd like to know more.
