1-month-old furpops was found on Monday, floating in tidal laundry at Scenery Nook, a popular cove near Christchurch. Their heads were nowhere to be found.

Officials said they thought the animals were killed somewhere else and then let go into the bay from a boat.

“Because of the disturbing, violent and violent nature of this disturbing nature against defenseless seals, it has been reported to the police,” said Andy Thompson, a local director of the New Zealand Departmental Department, in a statement.

He said that the coat seals are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and it is a crime to harass, disturb or harm them.

Three of the seals have been buried, while the other three were sent to Massey University for autopsies.

“While [autopsy] determines the exact cause of death, we think it’s incredibly unfortunate sharks would have bitten the head of six seals but left the body untouched,” said Thompson.

He said the killers might have thought that the seals ate large amounts of fish that could have been caught and sold for human consumption.

“That’s not the case,” said Thompson. “Research shows that 90 percent of Bank Peninsula’s fur seal diets consist of lantern fish that is not sought after in fishing.”

The authorities have appealed for further information on the seal death case.
