#MarineWildlife - The Irish Independent has a wonderful photo to accompany the video above of seven orphaned seal pups returned to the sea to rejoin their colony off Co Sligo after they were rescued and reared by the Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary.
All seven seals had been abandoned during the summer - at least one because its mother was scared off by reckless personal watercraft users.
That seventh seal, named Toby, was rescued from the dunes near Strandhill by the Walton family, to whom he became very attached. And the occasion seemed to get a bit much for him as he initially refused to leave the care of his human companions.
The Irish Independent has much more on the story HERE.
