A picture circulating the Internet of Noah Kennedy, the 14-year-old granddaughter of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, is stirring a bit of controversy. The picture, which was posted on her father, Maxwell Kennedy’s, Facebook page, shows the teen girl hunting baby seals in Canada.

The caption for the photo reads:

Noah and me working with Canadian wild life officials to cull seal population near Rankin Inlet. Over population of seals is causing great damage to local fisheries. Thousands of seal pups must be culled each year. We worked with trappers who taught Noah how to identify the weak ones.
