A curious group of cows saves Orphaned Seal’s life
This is the heartbreaking moment an orphaned baby seal became stranded in a field full of cows. The five-day-old pup got separated from its mother and found itself lost in a creek near The Wash in Lincolnshire. The cute animal is thought to have been trying to orientate itself when it got stuck in the muddy puddle in the middle of the herd.
The seal pup’s name is Celebration. When her mother was separated from her in July, she was only a few days old. She wasn’t discovered by people, which was incredibly amazing. At that time, a herd of 30 cows gathered to witness the weird newcomer after Celebration became stuck in the mud in Frampton Marsh, a nature reserve in the United Kingdom. While bird-watching, Ian Ellis saw a strange bunch of cows and used his telescope to get a better look. He was shocked to see a seal pup among the interested cows.
The rescuer did not see her mother around, so he decided to arrive on the scene immediately and took the young dog in for treatment. The little seal lost weight, was dehydrated, and got a lung infection when he found her. Ian took Celebration to a temporary residence at the Skegness Natureland Seal Sanctuary, where she was nurtured and given medical attention for her illness.
Here, she also found a companion that is Charlie, a seal that arrived at the same time as her. Since then, Celebration has focused on doing the prominent job a newborn seal pup is expected to do: eating as much as she can. Eventually, Natureland decided that Celebration and Charlie had put on enough weight to return home.
Both Ellis and the team from Natureland gathered at the ocean shore not far from where Celebration was found to see the pair of seals off. Unfortunately, the herd of 30 cows that had originally discovered Celebration weren’t able to make the trip down.
