  • A spokesman for the Caspian Environmental Protection Centre said the seals probably died a couple of weeks ago and there was no sign they were killed by poachers
  • Authorities in the Russian province of Dagestan said that it is unclear what caused the animals’ deaths, but it was likely they died of natural causes
