After wearing a sealskin coat during a November Newfoundland Santa Claus parade, 19-Year-old beauty queen Sarah Green was shocked to see herself smeared with blood and wielding a club over a pile of gore-stained seal carcasses in a doctored online photo posted on a anti-hunting Facebook page. Still, Miss Newfoundland and Labrador says she's going hunting.
_"It was gruesome. It was unnecessary ... when I saw the photo, of course my jaw dropped," she said in an interview. "I couldn't believe it, but it gave me a bigger motivation to stand up for the seal hunt. . . .
_"It's been a part of our h_eritage for hundreds of years and there's no reason to be bashing it," she said.
