Cows Help Stranded Baby Seal to Safety

In the most recent showcase of animals showing compassion for one another, a herd of cows has helped save a stranded baby seal in England.

The five day old seal ended up in the middle of a field dehydrated and underfed when a group of 30 cows spotted her and converged around her.

“There are seals on the edge of the marsh but it was the way the cows were so inquisitive that made me look,” said Ian Ellis, the 67 year old man who was walking by the area to watch the birds when he saw the unlikely combination of animals.

According to Ellis, the cows were nudging the baby seal with their noses but not hurting it. The theory is that she may have been swimming in the nearby creek when she got separated from her mother. As the tide changed, she was stuck in the marsh and then made her way inland.

Ellis called the Natureland Seal Sanctuary that asked him to pick the seal up and bring it to the sanctuary.

Now the baby seal is going through treatment with antibiotics for breathing problems as well as being cared for by the organization. She is on a high-fat diet of herrings and even got a happy name, Celebration, to go with her happy ending.

When she reaches 60 pounds, she will be released back into the wild.
