To cover yourself, you could perhaps take a video of it with your phone prior to dispatching it?

I think that would be wise. In my case I initially rang the NPWS for help and advice on how refloat the creature. However I soon released the poor divil was too badly injured to return to the sea. I rang the local ranger back on this and she advised humane dispatch but to record the injury which I did with neighbours higher tech phone. She came down to following day to examine the carcass. Now I don't know do they treat every such incident the same way but I guess that depends on the species involved, the particular circumstances of the incident and whether the particular ranger, garda etc. is satisfied all things are above board.
