The four seals had all been rescued separately across Wales over the last few months and were given round the clock care and rehabilitation at an RSPCA centre.
Over the winter months, the RSPCA says, it receives a number of calls from members of the public about stranded seal pups. However, not all lone seal pups have been abandoned. RSPCA Cymru advises that if you find a seal pup that looks fit and healthy, and doesn’t show any signs of distress, it is best to monitor it from a safe distance for 24 hours.
Please do not touch seal pups (they can give a nasty bite) and keep dogs and other animals away from them.
