Barnstable County Offers Bounty For Killing Seals
Environmentalists and Animal Lovers Unite! Today, a new policy issued by the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office seeks to solve several coastal problems via a mass culling of our seal population.
According to Cape Cod Today, A bounty of $20 per seal will be paid out for every dead seal brought to the Barnstable County Sheriffs Office this upcoming summer. The money will come from the sheriff’s operating budget, most of which used to go to the operation of the Barnstable County House Of Correction.
Apparently, the seals harm fisherman, and will restore a delicate balance to the fragile ecosystem. Say what? Killing seals? Really? Are we really are gonna let this happen?
