This Adorable Albino Seal Pup Was Rescued after Being Left Abandoned

Publish date:

This rather sad looking seal pup was found on a beach all by its self after being abandoned by its mother. It is thought that the seal pup was rejected because of its reddish-brown skin giving it an albino appearance. Abandonment under these circumstances is common in the animal world, but luckily for the pup local Russian photographers were there to save the day.

The seal was discovered on Sakhalin otherwise known as Seal Island. The seal would have never survived on its own so its incredibly fortunate that the photographers discovered the pup. The seal now appears to be save and well in a local sanctuary according to the video above.
