Call to cull fur seals
A SOUTH Australian MP wants a fur seal cull along parts of the South Australian coast because they are causing problems for other wildlife and the fishing industry. Liberal MP Adrian Pederick moved a motion in State Parliament yesterday calling for a management plan and a sustainable harvesting of New Zealand fur seals. Seal numbers around the Murray Lakes and the Coorong, south of Adelaide, have been increasing in recent years and are now estimated at more than 100,000.
