Kayakers save helpless seal pup entangled in netting off Namibia

Two kayakers in Walvis Bay, Namibia, saved a seal pup that had a plastic line wrapped around its neck. The helpless baby seal, filmed on May 12, is seen struggling in pain waiting for the pair of kayakers to cut off the wire from around its neck. Schalk Louw, who filmed these encounters on his GoPro, told Newsflare: "Peter spotted this Cape fur seal pup in the water with a line around its neck. The seagulls pecked its right eye out so Peter went and loaded it into the kayak. He called me over and I cut the line off. "I work for Pelican Point Kayaking as a tour guide. We take visitors to our beautiful country to kayak with our seals and sometimes even dolphins come by to say hi." Louw also filmed another encounter with a friendly seal that jumped on his kayak earlier in May: "Now is the time of year where most Cape fur seal pups become very curious and playful. So much so that they start to interact with humans. This 4-month-old fur seal as claimed the title of King of the Kayak."
