We were speaking with the guys from Nat Geo Critter Cam this week and the topic moved from recent projects to one of our favorites, Sable Island.
There's an ongoing mystery surrounding recently dead seals that wash up along the shores here with predation patterns on them not seen anywhere else on the planet.
It's as if these animals have been "corkscrewed" to remove just the fat layer. So surgical are these attacks researchers at at a complete loss to even begin to ascertain what's killing these seals. Is this the work of a shark in the surf line?
Time and perhaps a motivated film crew or two will once and for all open this mystery up. For the money, we think it's a shark.
We also think it may be the work of an International Sub Aquatic Soap Mafia...but that's just the coffee talking.
