Six defenseless baby seals decapitated and washed ashore near New Zealand

Crime against the animal kind is rising day by day. Be it global warming, or the effects of human act, animals have always experienced the worst circumstances when it comes to survival. The recent discovery of 6 decapitated baby seals found at New Zealand was described by the wildlife experts a crime comprised of brutal, violent, and disturbing elements.

These 11-month-old furry seal pups were located on Monday floating along with tidal wash near the Scenery Nook which is a particularly popular bay near the Christchurch. The heads were not found anywhere.

The officials believe that these animals were actually killed somewhere else and the bodies were dropped by the bay using a boat. Andy Thompson, the local manager at Department of Conservation, New Zealand, mentioned that the disturbing, violent, and brutal nature of the crime committed against these defenseless pups led to the officials filing a police report.

He also mentioned that these furry seals are protected as per the Marine Mammals Protection Act. Any act leading to harassment, disturbance, or harming of these species can lead to harsh punishment against the offender. Three of these were buried while others were sent for autopsies to the Massey University.
