Sooo cute! Seals belongs to the ocean, it is their home. This little pup ran to it without looking backward! :) I wish we could do the same with all the ones that are kept in captivity.

I will never understand how anyone could hurt such a cute animal, let alone kill them. What a great story.

I see. I have just looked at the profile of "Emily S." and it is completely blank, except for the following information:

Yet another "troll" who has just joined Care2 merely in order to make these fatuous and deliberately inflammatory comments.

Sigh.

Yes. I sincerely hope that none of the cruel, callous Canadian seal hunters murder him, though! Sigh . . .

@ Emily S. - Are you being deliberately stupid? If a wild animal is killed and eaten by another wild animal, that is natural and it would be stupid to try to prevent this state of affairs. However, when humans slaughter animals, that is another issue entirely! The annual seal hunt can in NO WAY be compared to polar bears or sharks killing and eating seals. There is NO NEED for us humans to murder seals - or any other animal, for that matter!

How wonderful! Best of luck to him.
