A search is underway for a headless seal which was spotted on the beach.
A couple spotted the dead animal on the beach at Bacton last week and warned others from going too close.
North Norfolk District Council said efforts were underway to find the seal's body, a task made challenging by the nature of the tide and the beach.
If found, the seal would be removed.
Sally Dunham, from Bacton, said saw the seal on the beach last week.
