Dear all,

My co-authors and I are pleased to announce the publication of our short
note:

Bishop, A. M., Onoufriou, J., Moss, S., Pomeroy, P. P., & Twiss, S. D.
(2016). Cannibalism by a male grey seal (*Halichoerus grypus*) in the North
Sea. *Aquatic Mammals*, *42*(2), 137-143. DOI 10.1578/ AM.42.2.2016.137

In this short note we report on observations of cannibalism by a male grey
seal in the eastern Atlantic. We describe the behavioural pattern of the
events and compare these cases to previous observations of pinniped
infanticide and cannibalism.
