Submitted by Steve on 08:10, 15th Jun, 2018 | 0

Yesterday Iris a grey seal pup at just 15kgs arrived at the GSPCA which was the most unseasonal grey seal pup the GSPCA had in their care.

The pup when she arrived was incredibly emaciated and the team were extremely concerned for her condition and the reasons why she was so thin at this time of year.

Despite the vets out yesterday on a number of occasions and the care of the team at the GSPCA Iris was fitting which was of huge concern and despite treatment she passed away in the early hours of this morning.

Sami a grey seal pup was rescued on a beach in Jersey just after Christmas starving and unwell and the GSPCA are hugely grateful to SandpiperCI who are kindly helping with her care.

If Sami hadn’t have been rescued by the JSPCA and BDMLR volunteers she would have certainly perished.

Nearly three months on from her rescue we the team at the GSPCA can’t believe how much she has grown and how great her appetite now is after her near death experience.
