THE Scottish SPCA have cared for 94 injured or abandoned seals since October 2016 and recently released three rehabilitated pups back into the wild.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity released Florent, Osha and Tywin on February 24.
The seals were brought to the charity’s National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross.

Centre manager Colin Seddon said, “Florent, a harbour seal, was found on a beach in Montrose with blood around her face and required treatment for a urinary infection.

“Osha, a grey seal pup, was found washed up in Kirkcaldy, very underweight and lethargic. She had laboured breathing as a result of lungworm infection.
“Tywin, another grey seal pup, was washed ashore at Prestonpans, Edinburgh.
“He’s been somewhat temperamental and hasn’t always cooperated with us but we’ve managed to get his weight up and complete a worm treatment.

“Our Head of Seals Kaniz Hayat, and wildlife assistant Nikki Andrews released Tywin, Osha and Florent last Friday.

“They have worked hard to ensure these seals have received all the care they require in order to get them fit and healthy enough to be returned to the wild.”

Anyone who discovers an injured or distressed wild animal should call the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
