Orphaned pup plucked from calf

Race against time has happy outcome

A baby seal who was left stranded after her mother died has been rescued, thanks to two local organisations.

The Manx Wildlife Trust and ManxSPCA teamed up to pluck the orphaned pup - who they've named 'Oracle' - from the Calf of Man.

She's now under the care of the ManxSPCA, who say Oracle is 'doing well' and putting on weight.

Lara Howe, Marine Officer for the Manx Wildlife Trust, says it was something of a race against time to get the pup off the Calf while they could . . .
