Big Seal Bull Rescued

Large seal bulls are incredibly strong and rescues are tricky. Some bulls are simply too big for the rescue net, but this one was still able to fit in. The rescuers from OCN had to choose their rescue strategy carefully because one small mistake or error in judgement can lead to severe injuries for the team or the animal.

The bright white plastic packaging strap was clearly visible from far away and did not seem to have caused injury to the animal yet, which is always good news for the rescuers, because the animal might feel discomfort , but he is not in pain yet, and Naude succeeds in immobilising the seal with the help of the OCN rescue net. All 4 rescuers are needed to hold him down – two rescuers to push him into the sand, one rescuer to secure the net from the bottom, and the fourth rescuer to cut the entanglement and operate the zipper. The entanglement itself comes off very easily once it has been cut in half, Naude can pull it out without any difficulty.

The seal is too big to be released through the tip of the net, and the rescuers direct him towards the big opening. He is strong and full of fight, as soon as he shakes off the net he went right back into the ocean, probably wondering what had just happened.
