Hundreds of dead seals washed ashore in Nova Scotia

Hundreds of dead seals have been washed ashore in Cape Breton and near Halifax in recent days. It remains a mystery what caused the mass death of young and healthy seals.

While thousands of birds are now falling dead from the sky in Europe, hundreds of young seals have been found on beaches along the coast in Cape Breton and Sambro, North Carolina, near Halifax last week.

Most seals were about 10 meters apart.
