False Seal Hunt Not A Surprise

Posted by a4g @ 4/16/2005 07:15:00 AM

Many were surprised by this report about a Boston Globe story that described a three hundred boat seal hunt that "[turned] the ice and water...red", but that never actually happened.

It didn't surprise Zeke Anderson, a long time Newfoundland resident and false seal hunter. The rough-faced vetern of false seal hunts all the way back to 1947, his face drawn and stretched by too many years in the elements, recalled wistfully memories of hunts past. "The false seal hunt is a tradition around here -- or rather, not a tradition."

In fact, it was at the False Seal Hunt Ball, back in 1968, that he met his beloved wife Evangeline. "She looked like an angel, covered in blood and the little bits of seal flesh that splatter everything during the hunt."

"Which doesn't exist?" I asked.

"That's right," he said, smiling and remembering better days.
