Swede the Baby Seal Has Been Release into The Wild

SWEDE the baby seal that was rescued in Liverpool, has been successfully released into the wild.

The seal pup was first seen in distress on November 4, and when later that evening the seal had not moved a wildlife volunteer stepped in to help. The pup, later named Swede was rescued from the Albert Dock in Liverpool and taken to the  RSPCA’s Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre in Cheshire for treatment.

Lee Stewart, manager for the wildlife centre said, “Swede came to us with flipper injuries and injury to his chin which suggests he may have hit some rocks.

“He was treated by our vets and then we cared for him for a fortnight until he was ready to be returned to the wild.”

The vets not only treated Swede’s injuries, but he also got to play and socialise with other seals in the centre’s pool before being ready for release.

The RSPCA has four wildlife centres and is currently treating more than 70 seals. They have recommended that if a seal pup is found that it should be watched from a distance for a day to give the mother chance to return before calling them.
