Isle of Man seal calf warning as first pups are born


Wildlife experts in the Isle of Man have issued a seal pup warning ahead of the annual breeding season.
Officials from the Manx Wildlife Trust said pups may look harmless but they have extremely sharp teeth and can be aggressive if approached.
The first pups of the season were recently spotted on the Calf of Man.
Marine officer Eleanor Stone said mothers have been known to abandon their pups if they are unduly disturbed by the public.
Ms Stone said: "The wardens on the Calf of Man have found two pups already and over the next few weeks many more will begin their lives on this remote island."
