Police in Skåne are warning the general public not to approach seal pups on beaches on the western coast of the county, local channel P4 Malmö reports.

The police have recieved worried phone calls from members of the public who have seen seal pups alone on the beaches.

Police say the pups have not been abandoned, instead their mothers are off fishing.

They add, however, that if the general public approach the pups, that can scare the mothers, and that can then cause them to actually abandon the pups.
