Moscow A total of 272 Caspian seals have been found dead off the coast of the Caspian Sea in Russia’s Dagestan region. These seals are found all over the land in the Caspian Sea. According to the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency, 272 seals have been found dead. The dead seal was found in the Sulak area up to the border of Azerbaijan. These seals are among the most dangerous creatures in the world. How the seal died is not yet known, according to a report by Russia Today TV. When the seal’s body was first found in the sea area, Zour Gapizov, director of the Caspian Nature Conservation Center, said the hunters were using plastic nets made in China that endangered the seal’s life. In addition, large amounts of polluted water are being discharged into the sea, endangering the lives of seals.

A large number of scientists have arrived in Dagestan to find out the cause of Seal’s death. At the same time some experts claim that these seals have died due to bad weather and disease or dirty water. The Caspian Sea is the largest lake in the world, surrounded by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan. The lake is famous for its fish eggs and oil. It is home to many such creatures that are not found anywhere else in the world.
