DEPARTMENT of Primary Industry’s fisheries workers have euthanased a seal at Apollo Bay.
Apollo Bay police yesterday confirmed that fisheries officers destroyed a seal at the weekend but could not provide information about the circumstances.
The Colac Herald last week reported that visiting fur seals had bitten three people at the town’s harbour and the Department of Sustainability and Environment warned people to steer clear of the mammals.
Police couldn’t confirm yesterday whether the euthanased seal was one of the aggressive group.
