Barnstable - Barnstable County Commissioner Ron Beaty today reiterated his long called for proposal for the culling of Cape Cod’s detrimental overpopulation of seals overpopulation which is directly related to the growing Cape Cod Great White Shark problem.
Beaty stated, “After listening to live coverage of the Wellfleet Shark Forum this evening, it has become more clear than ever that a majority of our residents and citizens are demanding that a long-term solution to the growing killer shark problem which is exasperated by the seal overpopulation problem be dealt with in the most serious manner possible.”
Beaty continued, “It is with these thoughts in mind that I again call for our respective elected officials on the federal, state, and local levels to immediately begin the long arduous process of trying to amend the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act so that at some point in the years ahead, we will have the ability to effectively cull the huge overpopulation of seals here on Cape Cod. This is the only realistic long-term solution to getting a handle on our Great White Shark problem itself.”
Beaty finished, “Scientists and animal rights activists apparently believe that shark lives matter, but I am here to tell them that human lives matter more!”
