The cull
Tribal pedigree is controlled by clubbing the weak & wayward viz. Portillo recidivas
Elephant Seal & Pups (Europa federalis) Moody, irritable. Too long in the tooth.
Performing Seal (Hagueis ridiculus) Entertaining comic turn.
Grey Seal (Major extinctus) Blubbers
McKay's Seal (Ulsterus absentus) Dozy. Rarely sighted.
Cow (Annus horribilis) Noisy & aggressive. Not one for the bulls.
Bull (Shagga norris) Prodigious breeder with an eye for the cows.
Santiago Seal (Pinochet apologista) Swims in putrid, murky seas.
Barking Seal (Maddas hattus) A very odd fish indeed.
