500 dead sea lions found rotting on beach

It could be pollution, a fatal illness, or even intentional poisoning by local fishermen. But while the cause may still be disputed, the fact that 500 dead sea lions ended up on a Peruvian beach is not.

Both young and old sea lions were found rotting on Anconcillo beach about 250 miles north of Lima, the BBC reports. City workers removed the corpses—which were so decomposed that authorities couldn't immediately determine the cause of death—and dropped them at a local dump, RT.com reports.
