  • Seal Pup found by a family walking Helliwell Provincial Park. The pup was beached & had bleeding tail wounds. The family had him under a tub when i arrived with the Eagle kennel. They were able to herd him into the kennel then we took turns carrying him out to the parking lot. The family transported him to Ford Cove where he was taken by water taxi thanks to Jim Funk, to a pick up person on Vancouver Island. Pup arrived at Saltspring & is now in care.
