No ice

Dearth of ice leads to deaths of pups.

Harp seals are probably familiar to most Canadians from images of the annual seal hunt. The animals need ice on which to give birth and feed their young. This year’s absence of suitable ice means harp seal pups have been washing up on shore all along the Gulf, in Eastern Canada. People have been advised not to try to rescue the pups, which can weigh up to 30 kilograms, the department said.
