This Spring is quite tough for the grey seals. There have been not henough ice. Thus, on dry dark land their pups are easy pray to white-tailed eagles. Furthermore, the previous Estonian environment minister, Keit Pentus-Rosimannus signed in November 2014, on her last day in this position, the documents to re-allow seal hunting, although experts recommended that the issue be given some more thought. And now from 15 April to 31 December it is allowed to kill 53 grey seals in Estonian waters.
