Healy-Rae calls for seal cull

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

MICHAEL Healy Rae is call­ing for a cull of seals he claims are caus­ing dam­age to fish­eries on the River Laune and Maine as well as other wa­ter­ways. “Fish­er­men pay dras­tic net li­cense fees but are not ac­tu­ally able to do any­more fish­ing be­cause seals are not just eat­ing all the salmon but they are also tear­ing the fish­er­men’s nets and caus­ing whole­sale de­struc­tion. The pop­u­la­tion is out of con­trol and I have called on the Min­is­ter that a cull will have to be or­gan­ised to re­duce the num­bers.”
