Sea Shepherd Mixes it up with Canadian Coast Guard

Once again, Sea Shepherd is in the thick of it. This time, with the Canadian Coast Guard over the seal killings.

A Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker and a ship steered by animal rights activists opposed to Canada's annual seal hunt collided in the Gulf of St. Lawrence overnight, officials said Monday.

A Fisheries and Oceans department spokesman said the Coast Guard vessel Des Groseilliers twice "grazed" the Farley Mowat owned by the militant Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

There was "no damage done" nor any injuries reported, he said.
