One case where three young men killed a protected seal and then posted photos of it on facebook, are now being prosecuted by DOC - one more reminder that stuff posted online can have very real legal consequences in the real world!

reminds me of the Norwegian tourist who posted video on youtube of him shooting a protected kereru, but in that case couldn't be prosecuted as he had already returned to Norway

Secondly a nice story about Greater Manchester police demonstrating their difficult job by posting summaries on Twitter of all 3205 incidents they dealt with in a 24 hour period
