Sizzle who was rescued on New Years Eve near the smelly pond in the Vale, Jagho Herman rescued in Herm mid December and Blueberry rescued at Fort Grey just before Christmas all extremely emaciated and with a variety of health problems have been nursed back to health, all more than doubling their weight and today saw them released back to the wild.

Submitted by Steve on 00:17, 15th Dec, 2021 | 0

Last week the GSPCA warned of the dangers of the stormy weather and sadly two orphaned grey seal pups were the result.

On Saturday the GSPCA had a report of a seal pup hauled up between Fort Doyle and La Fontenelle Bay, so Geoff George headed out to check out what had been seen with his partner Dani Brouard.

The 6 week old seal pup was found dehydrated and at only 25kgs, 15kgs under her ideal weight.

The pup has been called Luna C and is now under the 24/7 care of Geoff George Head of Marine Mammals and the GSPCA team.

We are pleased to announce that Pork Pie the grey seal pup originally from Cornwall is doing well and improving daily.

Geoff George GSPCA Animal Collection Officer and Head of Marine Mammals said “Little Pork Pie's wounds have healed and he is improving daily.”

“All 4 seal pups are eating well although Titan prefers mackerel to herring.”

“India, titan and Joey will hopefully be released next month but we have to ensure they are fit and well enough and we have good weather before we can set a date.”

Last night the GPSCA team were called out to the Fairy Ring for a poorly seal pup.

The pup was covered in cuts from a bloody nose to open wounds underneath and for its size very thin.

The seal pup also had a green tag with the number SL109.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Last night the team were called to the Fairy Ring to attend a poorly seal pup.”

“In attendance was Geoff George, Dani and Beckie and as the sun was setting they were pointed to a pup by a kind family out on a walk that was indeed very poorly.”
