Well, today I hit the NZ Herald website and was shocked by the 23 seals clubbed to death story. Evidence is that these attacks have been sustained over a week, and 8 pups are included in that tally.

Such callous brutality is sickening at so many levels. There is nothing admirable about someone who can derive pleasure from beating a defenseless, small seal pup to death. And to do it 8 times. Shudder.

Ever get the feeling that some people are just depriving some rare crocodile species of some useful protein? Here’s hoping that the culprits will be caught and justice done. With a strong punitive edge for deterrence.
