Cornish Seal Found In Portugal
2:06pm 15th August 2014
A Cornish seal pup has been found 1000 miles away.
Little Ludo was found stranded in Portugal back in January.
He was rescued and treated for dehydration and an eye ulcer.
Now he is heading home to Cornwall where he will be looked after at the seal sanctuary in Gweek.
Tamara Cooper is the sanctuary's animal care supervisor, she said: "We will keep him in our nursery pools for a period just to make sure he's fighting fit, but unless he shows signs of ill health should be ready to release in two or three weeks."
The Cornish coast hosts the world's biggest population of grey seals, and their distribution only extends as far south as the coast of Brittany.
"It's most like he came from our own seas, and for reasons known only to himself followed the Gulf Stream south last autumn," said Tamara.
"Maybe he was just desperate to escape our lousy winter weather."
