PETITION TARGET: Western Cape Director of Public Prosecutions

In a horrifying video posted on social media, two fishermen savagely abused a Cape Fur seal pup near Saldanha Bay in South Africa as they laughed and mocked the suffering animal.

One man filmed the disturbing footage while the other repeatedly stabbed and beat the terrified seal, who struggled desperately to escape.

Throughout the video, the man slapped the defenseless seal, force-fed it beer, swung it around by its tail, and slammed it repeatedly against the boat while both men laughed hysterically.

But the torture of this helpless animal isn’t funny. It’s barbaric and sadistic, and must not be tolerated.

The men behind the sickening video have been identified and charged with animal cruelty, and it’s imperative that they are brought to justice.

Sign this petition urging the Western Cape director of public prosecutions to prosecute the two men to the fullest extent of the law, and ensure they’re never allowed near an animal again.
