The very rocky shore to which the seals are here resorting is formed by the breaking down of near-by cliffs. The number ofbulls isrelatively so large as to lead to constant disturbance. A favorite occupation of the surplus bulls is to steal cowsfrom the harems byseizing them intheir jaws and carrying them away bodily or fliieing them bigh in the air. Many cows are thus severelyinjured, andmany pups are crushed bythe raging bulls. Section of a small rookery on St. George Island. Photo from Hu-h M. Smith, U. S. Bureau ofFisheries.
