We have unfortunately recently spotted on two occasions now, two seals that have been hooked by fishing tackle.

The first was in Black Allers Cove, Labrador Bay. Please be on the lookout and report to British Divers Marine Life Rescue on 01825 765546 asap if you come across it. It looks under weight and needs help. It may appear anywhere in Labrador Bay.

The second was sadly our regularly spotted seal, Brutas, who hangs out around fishermen at Hope’s Nose. Again, please report any similar sighting to the BDMLR so we can protect our precious local wildlife.
