(From thisissouthdevon.co.uk) St Mary”s Bay, Brixham- A huge dead mammal — thought to be a sea lion — has washed up on a Torbay beach mystifying wildlife experts.
A council spokesman said: “We believe it be a sea lion. Two of our men went down to have a look and they said there is no way they could move it. It is believed to weigh around half a tonne. I would be interested to know what injuries it has, if any. I have heard reports it has had internal bleeding which would suggest it has been hit by something, as that sort of injury is not a natural cause of death.”
