Ellie the Jersey poorly seal pup arrives at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 15:26, 22nd Dec, 2020 | 0

Yesterday an exhausted newborn grey pup was recued by BDMLR Jersey from Plemont beach.

They thank Ellie & family for calling it into the JSPCA out of hours driver who alerted them.

The pup was seen flailing around at sea with surfers in huge swell and came onto the beach exhausted.

The temporary white coat is not waterproof and pups this young should remain on land if possible until they moult this coat.

Sadly it is likely this pup was washed away from mum with the huge swell and if it had continued to float around at sea it would have eventually drowned.

WEATHER WARNING - Please keep an eye out for sick and injured animals with the stormy weather

Bad weather and extreme winds means it is difficult for hedgehogs and wild birds to feed normally, and young seal pups can easily be separated from their mothers.

Below is some advice on what you can do if you find an injured animal, but please remember we have a 24 hour emergency service and our number is 01481 257261.

If possible, contain the animal before calling - see our capture and boxing advice below.

Additional reports of possible Palm Oil & Dog Owners Warned of Substance on Beaches

Submitted by Steve on 16:33, 18th Dec, 2020 | 0

Again we want to warn dog owners of the presence of a waxy substance along our coast line which could well be Palm Oil once again.

We have been informed of a number of sightings along the West coast and most recently La Jaonnet.

The public is advised not to remove the palm oil but anyone who has picked any up should double wrap it in plastic and dispose of it with their normal refuse.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We have had more reports of the white oily substance being seen along our coast here in Guernsey and we are asking all dog owners are being vigilant.”
