Seal pup at Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness

17.45hrs : Medics Victoria Cooper and Stephanie Priss are going to view a 'seal pup' reported earlier. An RSPCA Officer is standing by to transfer the pup to the RSPCA if necessary.

18.30hrs : The medics have met with MOP Glen Wooden, who found the pup. The pup is very thin, fast breathing and obviously in need of help. A transfer is now ongoing to get the seal to the RSPCA asap.

Update : The pup arrived at the RSPCA Wildlife Hospital at Stapeley Grange, Nantwich at 23.00hrs. Halfway through its journey, Area Coordinator met with the RSPCA ACO and the pup was given fluids.

4th December : I've had an update from 'Nick', the RSPCA ACO that the pup has an abscess on its stomach and has pneumonia but they are hoping it will be OK. he's a right feisty little character and will be a definate handfull once he gets his full strength back !
