Activists in Canada Found Not Guilty of Getting to Close to Seal Slaughter

That's good news.
A judge has found five animal-rights activists not guilty of getting too close to seal hunters during the 2006 hunt off Canada's east coast.

The five were charged with coming within 10 metres of seal hunters on March 26, 2006 while filming the annual slaughter in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, not far from Cape Breton.

They are representatives of Humane Society International and Humane Society of the United States.
