    ooooo THANK you for sharing the photos.

    I hope all the creatures are doing OK out there in the post sewage spill.

    The seal pup has some wounds on its belly that I’m keeping eyes on….

    Our wonderful West Seattle

    Thanks for the photos Kersti.  The little guys are adorable!  I wonder if Seal Sitters should be notified about the seal’s injuries?

    • Kersti Muul February 19, 2017 (9:40 am)

      I thought about that…. but they can’t ‘go get’ the seal, per se. I guess it would have to strand, etc before they would get involved. 

      I can ask though :) it is looking pretty infected

  • Robin/Seal Sitters February 19, 2017 (11:50 am)

    It does look infected and “weeping” a bit, but it’s hard to tell if there is a swollen area around it or if it’s just that some of the fur there is dry and some wet.

    Please do let our hotline (206-905-7325) know if this seal – or any other – comes ashore or if the seal continues to haul out on the platform. Maybe we can get a more definitive photo. The good thing is that the pup is doing the “banana pose”, stretching and circulating warmth through his/her body…nice healthy behavior.

    It is true that until the animal ends up on shore there would be nothing we could do and salt water has tremendous healing properties. So, let’s keep a good eye on this beautiful pup! What a great photo of the otter sharing some space.

    Thanks so much!

  • Robin/Seal Sitters February 19, 2017 (12:00 pm)

    In close examination of the photos, I lean toward saying that is swelling in the area, but photos where the pup’s belly is either totally dry or totally wet would give a better idea.

      Thank you for the info Robin…especially about the ‘banana pose’ I didn’t know that :)

      I see this (or maybe another) quite often here..several times a week. It seems like the same one to me as the right eye is usually a little wonky; sometimes crusty and not open as much as the left. 

      I have lots of pictures I can forward to you..do you have an email for that?


Sorry, comment time is over.
