Seals heads nailed to Irish Seal Sanctuary door

The wrong way to highlight a problem
June 2012. Last week a fishing boat in Dingle (Ireland) arrived home with roughly 20 boxes of monkfish, the majority of which had been damaged by seals. This incident is one of many which fishermen claim proves that seals need to be culled. 

On the morning of 7th June, an incident took place, which is to nobodies benefit, and indeed harms the reputation of the coastal community of Dingle and the fishing industry in general.
Dingle is internationally famous as the home of Fungie the friendly bottlenose Dolphin, and the town has benefited hugely from his presence.

Heads nailed to the entrance
As the staff of international and local volunteers arrived at the Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary they found the heads of a common seal and a Grey Seal nailed to the entrance sign into the Sanctuary, with the words Cull and RIP written in red alongside.
