Seal Pups Injured In UK Storms

Some huge storms have been battering the UK and about 60 young seal pups have been caught in the crossfire.

The storms just happened to come at the same time that the pups were left alone by their mothers.

The seals would normally learn how to swim and grow stronger on their own, but not in these ridiculous storms.

The seals are now being cared for by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).

A worker at the RSPCA said:

"There have been about four coming in a day since the wind started, most of them just unable to deal with the conditions out there.

It would be incredibly hard work for the inexperienced swimmer to navigate such waters, and many of them just couldn't cope and were found floundering on beaches or rocks."

Four different RSPCA centers have taken in the poor baby seals.

The storms have actually produced wind speeds of 112mph!

It's just good to know that someone has the seals' backs.
