His name is Michael McDade, and he claims to be the world’s foremost defender of seals.
The very fact that he describes his group as the largest anti-seal slaughter movement in the world is blatantly delusional. No one has ever heard of it!
All very bizarre and trivial except that he is giving the marine conservation movement a very bad name by allegedly targeting the children of sealers, threatening violence against those who disagree with him and distributing disturbing misinformation throughout the internet.
This man is to the animal and wildlife defense movement what the Nigerian fraud scam is to unsuspecting people who end up losing tens of thousands of dollars.
He has actually implied that I am the “Seal Shepherd,” or rather that he is me. He signs messages sometimes as Paul and the association is designed to be close enough to confuse. He claims to know me – he does not.
As far as I’m concerned, he is plain and simply a fraud.
