Seal sin

Orphaned seal pup put down in Newfoundland.

The fate of the young hooded seal — known as a blueback — had captivated residents of the southern Newfoundland community of Harbour Mille on the Burin Peninsula.

“You can’t watch something starve to death, fade away in front of your eyes,” said Pam Pardy Ghent.

Area residents called the federal Fisheries Department to see if there was anything they could do, but were told by officials to leave the animals alone.

“It’s a sin to have to see that one die, to watch that one die,” said Cathy Keeping.
