25 Seals Clubbed to Death in New Zealand

More pups will die after losing their mothers

The bodies of two more fur seals deliberately clubbed to death were discovered at Ohau Point colony, a seals sanctuary, near Kaikoura, New Zealand.

The discovery raises the death toll to 25, but more pups are expected to die after losing their mothers.

Last week, 23 seals, including 8 newborn pups were clubbed to death in the colony.

Two other pups, believed to have starved to death, were also discovered in the area, reports say.

“An expert has put the total loss of seals at 49 as the 13 females clubbed would have led to the death of 13 dependent pups and 13 developing embryos,” a report said.
