Man arrested filming seal killing

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/nottinghamsh...

A Nottingham man says he is prepared to go to jail rather than pay a fine after being charged with breaching a seal exclusion zone in Canada.


Mark Glover refuses to pay the fine saying he did not breach the zone


Mark Glover, of the Respect for Animals Group in Carlton, was filming seals being killed when he was arrested and now faces a fine of $100,000.

Canada's prime minister defended the cull, saying seal numbers had tripled.

Mr Glover said: "The Canadians were getting fed-up with the level of cruelty we were filming."

He added: "The word went out and we were all arrested. The regulations are very straightforward, you cannot go within 10 metres of sealers killing seals.

"There was no reason for us to be within 10 metres and we weren't."

Can't have that.

3. Absolutely he is
It's been documented several times. He's lucky the sealers didn't attack the watchers, as they are known to do.
