Its fate is sealed

Chris Leggatt writes...

A few days ago I spent a lovely evening on the beach, however on the way back to my car I was saddened to see this seal pup that had been washed up by the surf. He had got a piece of plastic stuck around his neck and it had dropped down around his flippers thus making it impossible for him to swim. After he had drowned the plastic had loosened and become easier to remove, but the damage was done. The plastic ring had left a definite scar around his neck and flippers (not visible in this image) and had dramatically shortened his life. How sad to see the negative impact humans can have on the natural environment.
