According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Areas, during the investigation, the museum prepared detailed identification certificates for six spotted seals, even at birth, in an attempt to muddle through. However, deep investigation shows that four of the six spotted seals in Qinhuangdao Pigeonhouse Park were obtained illegally from a certain place in Dalian. At present, the person in charge of the spotted seals Museum has confessed and surrendered himself. The case has been transferred to the Public Security Bureau by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in accordance with relevant policies.
