Cape Breton Island, Canada, March 31, 2008—A trail of blood remains as sealers load harp seal carcasses following a hunt off the coast of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.

Canada's 2008 harvest limit is set at 275,000 harp seals, 5,000 more than in 2007, according to the AFP news agency. About 800 seals were killed on March 28 alone.
