Volunteers monitored this alert and seemingly healthy pup who does have a small nick on his nose. Most seals in the wild have minor cuts or abrasions, so it’s not always a health concern. In fact, we have had several pups over the last few years with infected wounds (some pretty severe) that have healed with just rest and salt water.
We have reports that Edmonds has had a busy pup season thus far, too. If you see a pup on the beach along the Edmonds waterfront, please call Edmonds Seal Sitters @ 425-327-3336. Seal Sitters MMSN responds to all other beaches stretching from West Seattle to Marysville’s Kayak Point. Thanks to all the Sno-King and Edmonds SS volunteers who are doing such a great job protecting the pups and educating the public, including the concerned young woman who was way too close to Teaser with her leashed dog.
