Please attribute the following to DOC Biodiversity Ranger, Anita Spencer.
Following today’s media attention the dog owner has contacted the Department of Conservation.
We will be following up with the dog owner about the incident as part of our investigation.
We wish to take this opportunity to again remind people to keep their dogs under effective control.
Seals can be expected on our beaches at any time, however there is likely to be more seals about over spring and summer.
