Teeth illegally taken from dead sperm whale

Shocking pictures have emerged of ‘trophy’ hunters hacking at the bodies and stealing teeth from sperm whales recently washed up on a beach in Skegness, UK.

Taking the teeth from the whales is an offence under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, and local police have confirmed that they are investigating.

Graffiti has also been sprayed on the bodies of two of the whales on the beach near Gibraltar Point. 

It is thought that the sperm whales may have got lost and entered the North Sea, where the sea floor is not deep enough, causing the whales to become disorientated and die. Some of the same pod that washed up in Germany also had teeth removed by members of the public as well.
