I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a beast' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both animals as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?

'see law being broken' is the wordplay.
'being broken' indicates an anagram.
'see'+'law'='seelaw'
'seelaw' is an anagram of 'WEASEL'.

'by' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for weasel that I've seen before include "Small fierce animal with slender body and reddish-brown fur" , "Carnivore (with evasive words)" , "Sly type" , "Scoundrel" , "Stoat's relative" .)
