Grey Seal rescue

I received a report from British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) about a small poorly seal at Selsey Bill.  BDMLR telephoned Trevor Weeks Wildlife Rescue Ambulance Service (WRAS).

The seal turned out to be a young grey seal, which was transferred over to WRAS's ambulance and drive back to WRAS's Casualty Care Centre where WRAS's vet Mike met them and helped assess the seals condition.

The seal had a high temperature, and breathing difficulties and was treated by the vet with  antibiotics and fluids to help the seal rehydrate. The seal is stayed with WRAS over night was moved on to the RSPCA Malladams Centre where they have facilities for rescued seals.
