During the Spring Festival in 2019, Changxing Island local police uncovers a serious spotted seal burglary case with 100 baby seals being stolen from natural breeding area in the north of Liaodong Gulf. On February 11, after receiving an alarm Changxing Island police found 100 stolen spotted seals in Laohutun, Wafangdian City, 29 of which are found dead. According to the latest report, there are only 71 baby seals left, with another 8 dead.


Spotted seal is on the list of ClassNational Protected Animals, and it is the sole pinniped creature that can breed in China seas. With efforts from government, society and volunteers, the population of spotted seals in Liaodong Gulf remains about 2,000.
