Therefore, well-meaning beachgoers who attempt to help these pups by taking them home, returning them to the water, covering them with a blanket, or approaching them too close, actually are doing more harm then good. Also, harbor seals, along with all marine mammals, are protected underThe Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 making it illegal and punishable by law to "take" marine mammals without a permit or to harm or harass them.

Agree & disagree:)
Thank you Penny

ONLY experienced volunteers should handle any kind of wildlife - if you as a beachgoer stumble upon any injured/lost animal, the biggest favour you can do is leave well alone and contact the relevant 'authorities' to come to the rescue. And - protected or not, if you as the average person try to get anyone to act when you are faced with any kind of atrocity towards marine life, you more often than not find you know more about the 'law' than what they do - sometimes I wonder if any police force has ANY knowledge of what rules and regulations are in place for the protection of our animal kingdom.

what cool stories ..It had me weeping about silent nights shotgun wound..It makes me so sick to my stomach that men do this with out even an ounce of compassion as to how painful that poor animal must be going through and not even know why he was shot and left to ..die ..I would sleep better at night knowing that these men die a painful death along with the people they love.. I would feel notheing if I saw that happening to them or their loved ones..Stupid Punks..Sorry everyone I get really emotional when I hear of heartbreaking stories that I feel powerless to stop.
