    5 day-old baby seal stuck in mud, rescued by cows in England
    Published time: 27 Jul, 2015 06:35

    A baby seal was stuck in the mud in a natural reserve in England. Being underweight, dehydrated and left without a mom, the animal was sure to die, but she was miraculously rescued by cows who apparently became interested in the furry ball.

    The rescue ‘mission’ took place in RSPB Frampton Marsh, a natural reserve in Lincolnshire, England. A local bird watcher, Ian Ellis, noticed a herd of about 30 cows surrounding something near a muddy puddle.

    “When he looked through his telescope he saw that they were surrounding a tiny seal pup [stuck in] a creek,” said a Facebook post from Natureland Seal Sanctuary, an animal attraction center in Lincolnshire, which later took the baby animal in. The seal’s mother was nowhere to be seen, according to Ellis.

    “Once we got the pup back to Natureland, she went straight into the Seal Hospital to begin treatment. Her main problem is that at only 5 days old, she was orphaned and therefore had not fed for a while, she had lost quite a lot of weight and was dehydrated,” one Natureland’s directors, Richard Yeadon said.

    The hospital named her "Celebration" and got her hydrated and full of fish. She's doing much better now.

    Reminds me of this gem from Beth the animal expert:

    “Howard and I were walking on the beach and a seal came out of the water and was basking in the sunshine like a fat Hawaiian tourist. It was the cutest thing ever. It was so special, but I was worried; I didn’t know that it was normal for the seals to come out, so I was ready for a rescue mission."

    Did Howard include this quote in a beautiful note to the seal?
