When the newly crowned Miss Newfoundland and Labrador, Sara Green, posted a photo of herself online draped in a sealskin fur coat, an unsurprising thing happened.

A Facebook group called “F**k Off Newfoundland — Leave Our Seals Alone” posted a photoshopped version of the original with bloody seal carcasses, with green wielding a hackapik.

“Obviously, when I saw the picture, my jaw dropped. There’s seal carcasses everywhere,” Green, 19, told CBCNews. “But I don’t regret wearing a sealskin coat and supporting the seal hunt.”

Green is now using the photo to draw support to the hunt — which, as we reported late last year, is in the dying stages in Newfoundland.

“I grew up in a family that goes seal hunting every year,” she added, “and I’m going to go seal hunting this year. I really am.”

Wow — sick.
