In this day and age ships can float around our seas and oceans pumping crap engine oil into them killing whatever gets caught up in it and no authority knows anything about it!
Well this just sickens me and the perps need prosecuting!!

Oil-soaked birds have been discovered dead on Chesil beach near Portland.

The corpses have been found along the iconic 20 mile-long shingle bank and the oil is thought to have been flushed out of a passing ship.

The birds that have been affected are mostly gannets and they live at sea at this time of year.

After getting oil in their feathers they don’t have the energy to make it to the shore and slowly die, their bodies being washed up later

Oil-soaked birds found dead

Is this normal practice for ships to dump old oil where they like?
