Seven Dead Harp Seals Washed Up Near Hopedale

Seven dead harp seals were found washed-up on shore outside of Hopedale.

Joseph Townley is the Conservation Officer for Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

He says the seal carcasses were found at Black Head, near Hopedale.

Hopedale’s conservation officer travelled to the location to get pictures of the seals.

The officers aren’t sure of the reason for the dead seals.

Townley says that the Hopedale Conservation Officer will attempt to travel back to the location to collect samples.

He will do so if the weather conditions allow.
