Tiny grey seal pup found orphaned on a Scottish beach

February 2014: The Scottish SPCA is caring for a tiny orphaned seal pup found underweight and asleep on a beach in the Highlands. Scotland's animal welfare charity was alerted after a dog walker spotted the grey seal on Sandside Beach at Reay.

The six-week-old pup, which has been named Little Mermaid, will now be looked after at the charity's National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross, Clackmannanshire, until she is old enough to fend for herself.

Senior Inspector Audrey Gunn said, "Little Mermaid was fast asleep on the beach when I found her. It was obvious she was underweight and far too young to be on her own, so I arranged for her to be transported to our wildlife centre for expert care.
