The reported harassment of a leopard seal on Caroline Bay is still being investigated.
The investigation followed an incident last month when two dogs, allegedly encouraged by their owners, had chased the seal into the water.
Conservation Department biodiversity ranger Steve Harraway confirmed at the time that DOC was following inquiries and waiting on further information from police, who were also alerted to the incident.
DOC had been provided with video footage of the alleged harassment, Mr Harraway said. Yesterday, he said he was still waiting to hear from police about the matter.
Senior Sergeant Mark Offen said police had completed their investigation and the information was in the process of being handed over to DOC.
