We should offer a reward for the shooter.

To help pay for the massive fine(s) if he/she ever gets caught?

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

Maybe we should all just keep quiet when we hear gunshots in the tuna fleet and realize a seal just took down a valued pogy

I have a (fishermen) friend on Nantucket who has formed a group called the Seal Abatement coalition and they are approaching it from a legal angle. According to them there is language in the federal law which does allow for reduction of the population in areas where it is causing danger to humans. I don't know if you have been to Great Point recently but seals have taken over the place and will chase humans. Seals have killed what surf fishing was there.
I think it is just a matter of a few years (<5) befor a human is killed from a GW shark.
