Dead Seals Discovered




MOSCOW -- Fishermen have discovered 50 dead baby seals on an island in the Caspian Sea, emergency officials in Kazakhstan said Saturday.


The cause of the animals' deaths was being investigated, said Kazakhstan's Emergency Situations Ministry, according to Interfax.


The seals were found Thursday on the island of Shalyga, 5 kilometers from the mouth of the Ural River on the northern coast of the oil-rich Caspian Sea. All the seals were born this year, the report said.
