Once again the Bailiwick has high winds and weather that puts our animals and wildlife at risk.

Often during the winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

With the high winds we have to ensure our pets and animals kept outside are safe and secure.

Once again GSPCA are asking those that live around and visit our coast to please watch out for injured animals in need as well as seal pups which can get separated from their mothers at this time of year especially when we see bad weather.

Every Autumn the shores of the Bailiwick see Grey Seal pups being born and the GSPCA are issuing advice today on what to do if you see a seal pup in need.

It is extremely important not to approach or get too close as this can often scare the mother away and certainly do not let your dogs approach pups or adults.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “With rough weather and as we move closer to the winter we often see seal mothers seperated from their pups.”
