  • Thick Sea Ice Has Been ‘Catastrophic’ For Canadian Seal Hunters

    Sea ice around Nova Scotia is so thick, Canadian sealers will have trouble meeting Quebec’s growing demand for grey seal meat. “We’ve never had trouble meeting demand, but for 2018, we’ll have to see,” Réjean Vigneau, president of the Intra-Quebec Sealers Association, told CBC News. CBC reports that crews usually haul in 2,000 seals during the winter season, but two failed expeditions in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence since January turned up nothing. Vigneau called it “catastrophic” for the working men of the Magdalen Islands who depend on seal hunting for their livelihood, and to the environment. This year, thick...

    More than 125 people and two helicopters search in national park. Concern for a missing park ranger grew Monday as an intensified search failed for the third day to find any trace of Jeff Christensen. "We've got nothing," said Scott Sticha, information officer with the Rocky Mountain National Park. "If one of the dogs even turns their heads, we're on it. But we've got nothing." More than 125 searchers joined the effort Monday, more than double the number searching the day before, and two helicopters swept overhead. "The only thing that we have ruled out is lightning," Sticha said. "He...

Volunteers were called off the search at nightfall and were expected to return to continue the search this morning. Christensen, an experienced mountaineer and EMT, was planning to do a backcountry patrol to the Lawn Lake...

He did not contact park staff that evening, although he was carrying a radio, and did not arrive for his shift Saturday. A search began early Saturday with more than 25...

    Radical animal-rights activists may be the last people you'd think would be planning school lessons for your children. Well, think again. Through its innocuous-sounding "educational" programming arm known as TeachKind, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has found a way to reach school children starting as young as kindergarten with its extremist agenda. The opportunity for PETA (search) to gets its message into the classroom has been paved, at least in part, by various laws on the books in at least 12 states mandating humane education in public schools — thus creating a demand for curricula centered on teaching...
