Sixth and latest ever seal pup in the season to be rescued - please donate to Hannah and the other 6 seal pups at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 09:47, 17th Feb, 2019 | 0

Yesterday morning the GSPCA team were called out to yet another sick and very underweight grey seal pup.

The call came near the Fairy Ring and the team when they arrived were faced with an emaciated and very poorly young seal pup which was half the weight it should be.

The pup was quickly recued and transported to the GSPCA and the young pup at only a few weeks old should be over 40kgs and was just 20.6kg when rescued with no mother in site.

This takes the numbers of seal pups to the highest it has ever been in our long history.

Mambo as the grey seal pup has been named was rescued at Fort Doyle.

The very thin poorly pup has a chest infection and discharge and is now in the intensive care area for seal pups at the GSPCA.

Geoff George Head of Marine Mammals said “We certainly don’t expect to have to rescue a 5th seal pup on the weekend.”
