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.
