Injured seal pup crawls up stairs looking for help — beachgoers save the day

An injured, lethargic baby seal crawled across the beach looking for help — and thankfully was found by some kindhearted beachgoers. Now, she’s getting a second chance.

Seal Rescue Ireland shared the story of Tralee, a 4-to-6-month-old female grey seal pup who was found in Kilkee Beach in County Clare on March 10.

According to a Facebook post, the seal was lethargic and injured, and in a desperate plea for help crawled across the beach and up a flight of stairs.

Thankfully, members of the public found the poor seal and became concerned. The crowd contacted Seal Rescue Ireland.

The rescuers found Tralee to be underweight for a seal of her age, had parasites and multiple wounds across her back flippers. They treated her wounds and provided pain relief and antibiotics.

Tralee has made a recovery, and the rescue says that her personality has begun to shine through.

“She has responded well to treatment, and now that we see her personality shining through, it’s no surprise she draws a crowd,” Seal Rescue Ireland wrote. “She certainly has star quality and leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes.”

Tralee is now “up for adoption,” as people can make a donation to support her recovery and receive updates about her progress.

What a beautiful seal — she crawled up those steps looking for help and thankfully she found it. We wish her the best in her recovery ❤️🦭
