Here is an interesting story I found while on the internet: The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild, amid cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later they were both eaten by a killer whale. Okay, so I don't know if this is a true story, but it did bring a couple of thoughts to mind: First, I think seals are great but I'm not going to spend $80,000 to "rehabilitate" one. Second, who paid for the rehabilitation? I sure hope it wasn't my tax dollars. Third, that is the most expensive meal that I have ever heard of!
