Huge pans of ice

Two sealing boats push their way through pans of ice in search of seals during the annual Canadian seal hunt in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada March 25, 2006. Canadian hunters started shooting and clubbing harp seal pups on Saturday at the start of an annual hunt that is the focus of a tech-savvy protest by animal rights groups. This year, 325,000 young seals will be killed on the ice floes off the East Coast where the animals gather. (Paul Darrow/Reuters)
