It's hard to understand the mentality of some people, as this BBC news report highlights :-
A group of grey seals have been found beheaded on a beach at a Tyneside seaside resort.
The RSPCA said five seals, three of which were decapitated, were found dead at Whitley Bay on Monday morning. A spokesman said all of the seals were juveniles, with the eldest thought to have been no more than a year old and the youngest just a few weeks.
One of the seals had been tagged as part of a study by the Sea Mammal Research Unit in St Andrews, Fife.
RSPCA acting chief inspector Mark Gent said: "This was a very upsetting thing to come across and has caused a lot of distress to the person who found them. "These were very young animals, one of them was what is often described as a white coat, and was just a few weeks old. "Clearly they have not died of natural causes and we are very concerned.
Seals are protected under UK legislation.
Apparently this is not a new problem, as the Seal Protection Action Group highlight.
