So, I read a comment on a message board somewhere that at one point, Greenpeace interfered in seal hunts in Canada by spraypainting seals with spray paint to make the pelts unsellable. The comment went on to say that this made the seals easier for polar bears to catch, leading to more seals being eaten by polarbears.
Reading in various places it seems that Greenpeace did indeed going about spraypainting animals, but did it have any real effect on how easy it would have been for a polar bear to catch a seal? Do Polar Bear parents teach their young not to eat green seals, kinda like how my parents taught me to toss out any food that had turned a different color? Would they even notice or care about the color difference one way or another?
Don’t want to make this about the rights or wrongs of animal activism or whatever, just wondering about the painting seals thing in particular.
