Quantcast Meatless Mouthful–Paul Watson’s First Activism Memories

“I was raised in an eastern Canadian fishing village right on the Maine border, called St. Andrews. I used to swim with these beavers in a beaver pond when I was 10. I went back when I was 11 and found there were no more beavers. I found that trappers had taken them all so I became quite angry and that winter I began to walk the trap lines and free animals from the traps and destroy the traps. So that was really my first venture into activism.”

–Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson, on his first memory of animal activism to The Faster Times.
