The cruel men attacked the seal until it lost consciousness, reports local media houses. "They beat the seal up until it passed out," said an unnamed witness. "Then they pulled it out of the water so that children could take pictures and have fun. After that, they threw the motionless body back into the sea. I don't know if it survived." A similar incident was also captured on camera this week in the city of Aktau, around 43 miles from Kuryk. The video was shared on Instagram by Kazakh model Yevgeniya Mukasheva. In the caption, the model wrote: Did people really have a complete lack of brains???
If an animal comes close to you, it means it trusts you. How could you throw stones at the defenseless pup and laugh? Have you lost your mind?! When will we already understand that it is necessary to value and care for every being on the planet? What more pain do we need to strike so that we understand that compassion and compassion must be at the head? Saken Dildakhmet, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Ecology, Geology, and Natural Resources said, "The way people acted in the video is outrageous and wild. Such an attitude can cause great damage to the fauna of the Caspian Sea and adversely affect the behavior of these animals who may become aggressive and attack people."

"We ask you to show respect to nature," he said, adding, "The seal in the clip is young and playful. The seals are mostly very friendly and curious marine mammals. We should admire them." The cops are now searching for the perpetrators in both videos. If found, they could face a maximum penalty of two years in prison. ZinaBeth Davis took to Facebook to comment: So they are teaching their children it is ok to abuse. Animals and people. So sad. Seals are harmless in their water minding their business. Sad world. Killers should be put under the jail for killing an animal for pleasure cause that's what they did.
Apart from this, they need to do sth or experience sth to learn from mistake. Otherwise they would just go to somewhere else to beat other species— ✦ SUN DING ✦ (@imshinbei) July 9, 2020

Shameful and disgraceful! Very upsetting! Janie Menzies shared: I'm convinced this world is now sick so much cruelty going on people do just as they like without any sort of conscience so much for teaching our children and future generations the meaning of respect 🤔😡 Cheryl Silcock posted: Where are the parents.
