TWO in­jured seal pups have been res­cued by an an­i­mal wel­fare char­ity – the first of the sea­son need­ing care.

Grey seal pup, Harry, was found with sev­eral wounds and an in­fected flip­per in Bod­dam, Ab­erdeen­shire, on Novem­ber 2.

The other pup, Mad-eye, who is around five weeks old, was found on Dun­net Beach, in Thurso, with a col­lapsed eye – which will need to be re­moved.

Both were taken to the Scot­tish SPCA which is car­ing for them at its wildlife cen­tre in Fishcross, Clack­man­nan­shire.

The char­ity ex­pects to care for more than 100 grey seal pups over this au­tumn and win­ter sea­son.
