*NEWS Usan Fisheries Threat to Sea Shepherd UK Volunteers in Seal Defence Standoff*
Report from Scotland
Tensions are rising in Banffshire with conflict expected as early as Easter Monday in seal defence standoff.
Sea Shepherd UK are currently active in Gardenstown and Crovie in the North of Scotland. They are there to prevent Usan Fisheries, otherwise known as the Scottish Wild Salmon Company, from shooting iconic Scottish seals over the Easter holiday break. Last year the Scottish Wild Salmon Company admitted to killing 18 grey seals during the same period. Local reports suggest the number was much higher.
Tensions have been escalating over recent days as Sea Shepherd UK has continued preventing the Scottish Wild Salmon Company from shooting seals. The kill total since Sea Shepherd arrived is zero. Armed Scottish Wild Salmon Company staff are now acting in an increasingly belligerent manner towards our personnel on the ground. Sea Shepherd UK are preparing for direct confrontation from these armed killers as a result.
On Good Friday, Scottish Wild Salmon Company personnel confronted Sea Shepherd volunteers in Gardenstown Harbour. One senior member of their party, accompanied by a rifle carrying employee, shouted in front of children and other holidaymakers the threat that he would make us wish we were back in Japan. Sea Shepherd refuse to back down in the face of intimidation such as this and will continue to stand against marine wildlife killers no matter what threats are made.
All Sea Shepherd UK activists are committed to stand in front of any rifle aimed at a defenceless seal by the Scottish Wild Salmon Company or by any other seal killers.

#ThrowbackTuesday I'm 17, Rick Ashley was the look and the future and whole world was in front of me.
