Herd Of Cows Help Save A Stranded Baby Seal

Herd Of Cows Help Save A Stranded Baby Seal

The staff at “Skegness Natureland Seal Sanctuary” were faced with a testing situation when they received an emergency call from a man named Ian Ellis. 

Apparently, Ian had been bird-watching on the RSPB Reserve at Frampton Marshes, when he witnessed something unusual through his telescope.
Ian had discovered a massive herd of over 30 cows surrounding a stranded, unconscious pup. The poor creature was lying buried in the marshy soil, while the cows looked on anxiously as they wondered how to help the distressed baby. 

Considering the lack of time and the uncertainty of the situation, the sanctuary workers provided Ian with crucial instructions on how to navigate around the herd and retrieve the baby. 

When he got a better look, he was shocked to realize that the creature was not a pup, but rather a baby seal! 
The next hour was tense, but the 67-year-old animal lover meticulously followed the workers’ advice and successfully hauled the traumatized pup to safety!
The baby seal, later on named Event, was rushed to the sanctuary’s hospital in a dehydrated and lethargic state. She was simply 5 days old and most likely was orphaned. 

The veterinarian speculated that Celebration wound up in the marshland after being swept away in a high tide. 

For the next couple of days, the baby seal got on hydrating fluids until her health eventually stabilized.
Party is also young to feed on her own in water, so she can not be released right into her habitat yet. 

One more pressing issue is her respiration trouble, for which she is undergoing an antibiotic-based treatment. 

Celebration is currently mingling well with the various other puppies in the sanctuary, and it’s just an issue of time that she makes a full recovery!
