Plastic ring around seal's neck still stuck a year later

Grey seal spotted at Langness

A seal, spotted last year with a plastic ring caught around its neck, has been seen still stuck a year later.

The animal was first noticed in 2019 and has been seen with the collar once again this week at Fort Island, Langness.

Manx Wildlife Trust says the condition of the grey seal doesn't seem to have deteriorated too much.

However until the animal becomes weaker they are unable to get close enough to remove the plastic.
