Toeristen slaan zeehond dood voor een selfie

In Kazachstan heeft een groep toeristen een zeehond doodgeslagen voor een selfie. Nadien smeten ze het dier in het water.

De onder de auspiciën van het Zeehondenfonds Lenie ’t Hart en de WWAR lokaal opgerichte seal rescue teams van Iran onder leiding van Amir Shirazi en van Dagestan onder leiding van Gajiev Alimarud, gaan ter plaatse voorlichting organiseren om soortgelijke toestanden in de toekomst te vermijden.

President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev called a wild case in the south-west of the republic, when vacationers on one of the beaches beat a sea seal to take pictures with him.

“Recently there was an incident in Aktau of the Mangistau region: a seal was killed with stones and sticks. This wildness is simple. On the other hand, children and teenagers cannot be blamed for this. Because no one explained to them at school and especially at home that this should not be done, ”Tokaev’s words conveyed to RIA Novosti.

He also called on the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic to pay attention to this and introduce the subject of children’s environmental education in schools.

Recall, on July 6, on the coast of the Caspian Sea near the Kazakh city of Aktau, vacationers beat up with stones and sticks a seal that swam close to the shore. The further fate of the animal is unknown. Flayer is wanted by the police.

For cruelty to animals, the legislation of Kazakhstan provides for a fine in the form of a fine or the appointment of correctional labor.
