Help, here rests a seal: the police during the easter holidays to 15 calls per day
Ostend It is easter and that having the police in the future, at least as to reports of stranded or injured seals. “We are overwhelmed with phone calls. Since the easter holidays, so about 15 per day, whereas previously a maximum of two per day were,” says Alain Peeters from the department of environmental enforcement of the Ostend police.

He calls tourists to see the seals leave alone and not needlessly the emergency services to call. “Seals rest now once out on the beach and breakwaters. Overbezorgdheid is not necessary. Lie them on their side in the posture of a banana, then there is nothing to worry about. If the seal is sick or injured, has no strength and is flat on his belly. Go that first time, before the emergency services call”, indicates Alain Peeters, the first chief inspector, department of environmental enforcement.

a Lot of tourists seem to think to quickly that a seal is injured, while in practice usually not the case. “With the result that there was always a patrol must go out and look and Sea Life will be notified. We arrive at the beach, we also found that hikers are much too close to avoid. That's not allowed and is dangerous. Seals can deep bite and cause infections”, Alain Peeters further. In addition, can seals bother even GAS-fine netting.
