White Rock RCMP are investigating an alleged incident of animal cruelty at White Rock Beach last weekend.
The investigation was prompted by a complaint from a resident who said she witnessed a family luring seagulls onto the railway tracks Sunday evening, where they were hit by an oncoming train.
A post on social media detailing the incident, as well as photos of dead seagulls on the tracks, was also circulated this week.
RCMP say the investigation is in the early stages, and officers are still in the process of seeking out witnesses to the incident.
Provincial conservation officers are also investigating, according to RCMP.
Anyone with information is asked to call White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600.
