Hook removed from seal, Merseyside

Dave Holden a medic in the West Kirby area was contacted to say that there was an injured seal in the Little Eye area. Dave went to see what the problem was and found the Common pup in good body condition except for a large sea fishing hook embedded in it's right jaw/lip. Dave was able to catch the pup and transported it to RSPCA Stapely Grange Wildlife Centre where their vet removed the hook and was assessed overnight. The next day after the vet had given the pup a clean bill of health, Dave was able to release the pup back to the wild.
