Yesterday Iris a grey seal pup at just 15kgs arrived at the GSPCA which was the most unseasonal grey seal pup the GSPCA had in their care.

The pup when she arrived was incredibly emaciated and the team were extremely concerned for her condition and the reasons why she was so thin at this time of year.

Despite the vets out yesterday on a number of occasions and the care of the team at the GSPCA Iris was fitting which was of huge concern and despite treatment she passed away in the early hours of this morning.

As you can imagine despite all of the hard work to try and save this extremely poorly seal pup the team are devasted due to her passing in the early hours of this morning.

Temperance is still on the road to recovery and will be released very soon and we continue to appeal for fish to help with her care.

If you haven't got any fish you can still help by donating to -

Temperance the injured and very poorly grey seal pup was rescued at Beaucette Marina last November has more than tripled his weight and has turned into the fastest swimming seal we have ever had so is now in the last stage of his rehabilitation.

Temperance was the thinnest grey seal pup to be rescued by the GSPCA and it has been a long road in his care to get him fit enough to get him to where he is today.
