The rescuers from OCN had a busy morning at Pelican Point. Wally was still wearing a sleeve to support his arm from the recent humpback whale rescue as a precaution, he is much better already.
They spot an entangled seal close to the water. While the Denzil secures this seal in the net, Wally spots another one, but he is too big for today as the rescuers have only one big net available. Kat finds the next entangled seal close to the water and Denzil uses the baby net to catch it – and Wally manages to catch a third entangled seal!
One of the rescued seals was very deeply cut by fishing line. The plastic was removed and the salt water will hopefully support the healing process. Deep entanglements like this one are often caused by thin fishing line and they are hard to spot unless the injury is visible.
Only two of the seals were new rescues, one was a recapture, which shows us that many of our rescues survive.
