When PETA Protests Seal Slaughter, Dallas Sends Recipes

In our wildest dreams, we never thought a seal hunting protest would be worth noting on City of Ate--but the comments on our coverage of PETA's downtown demonstration this afternoon has taken on a distinct culinary flavor. Readers have contributed a pair of seal recipes.

It's not all that much of a stretch--just last month, Canadian Governor General Michaelle Jean stoked international criticism of Canada's seal-hunting policy by joining in an Inuit skinning ceremony and eating a seal heart.

Jean's meal of seal has even left our northern neighbors divided, with prime minister Stephen Harper supporting the heart-eating, and others in the cabinet making Braveheart comparisons.
