Petition Strengthen laws protecting seals
To introduce laws that specifically protect seals against dog attacks as well as disturbance from both humans and their pets, making it unlawful to touch, feed, chase or worry a seal in England and Wales.
Seal sightings are increasing across the country and this has led to more frequent and sometimes deadly interactions between the public and their pets. It is important to urgently assess the need for further legislative protection for seals to encourage the peaceful coexistence between the general public and wildlife.
