Seal Pup at Sewerby

Today we received a call via the RSPCA for a seal pup at Sewerby. The caller, Mr Kilburn from the Ship Inn on Cliff Road, had spotted the pup against the cliff wall early this morning. I called Tracy Guild, our local medic, who went to check out the pup in her lunch break and found it to be underweight (see attached pictures). This was also the opinion of our Senior Veterinary Consultant James Barnett. As Tracy had to get back to work, Bev Drayton picked up the pup and took it into Swanbridge Vets for fluids. RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre said that they could take the pup so then a relay was set up with medics from Hull and Lincoln.

Our thanks go to Bev, Tracy, Dianne Davies, Russell New, James Barnett and RSPCA East Winch for their dedication and speedy response.
