MERR Institute rescues injured baby seal

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – Animal rescuers were back at it again last week, saving a baby seal who appeared to be injured.

We’re told the MERR Institute rescued a male seal pup from the Gordon’s Pond area. They say the seal was underweight and suffering from some bite wounds, most likely inflicted by other seals. But, those wounds didn’t hold him back, as MERR says the pup was still alert and feisty during the rescue.

He is now undergoing testing, then will be moved to a long-term care facility in the Greater Atlantic Region.
