Seal hunting - the Dutch approach...

In the Netherlands seals are not hunted but rescued. Seals have names in the Netherlands. This is Tomke. Tomke got lost in the canals of the Province Zuid-Holland. A watchful lock-keeper closed the doors of the lock as Tomke swam by. A team of the local fire department with the people of the EHBZ (= Eerste Hulp bij Zeehonden - First Aid for Seals -SSRC) took the seal out of the water. Tomke is now recovering in Pieterburen at the Seal Rehabilitation and Research Centre Lenie 't Hart.
