Seal Rescued After Rope Was Wrapped Around Its Neck

These wildlife sanctuary staff removed ropes that were wrapped around this poor seal's neck. The rope was wrapped tightly around the seal's neck four or five times.

Rescuers had to cover the animals neck with a towel to stop it from biting them and then they were able to cut the rope and free the seal.
