AN adult grey seal and her pup have been released back into the wild after paying a visit to a North Wales power station.
The RSPCA was called to Anglesey’s Wylfa Power Station after the two inquisitive seals took a wrong turn and ended up on site yesterday (Monday 24 November).
Seals sometimes get dragged along by the strong currents created by the power station and can slip through the bars at the end of the sea pipe and end up in the cooling chambers.
Luckily the seals were unharmed by their adventure and were recovered by RSPCA animal collection officer (ACO) William Galvin and animal collection officer Ann Lloyd Williams.
The seals were then later reintroduced to the sea at nearby Cemlyn Bay.
ACO Galvin said: “We managed to catch the mother and pup who were both healthy.
“We then went to Cemlyn Bay and released the seals. They had a quick sniff of each other and then they were off.”
