There have been a lot of fur seal pups washed up on the beach. It is the time of year that the mum’s kick them out of the, um, pool? A lot don’t survive. This one looked pretty exhausted but when I retiurned it had made it’s way halfway back to the ocean.
The other pup (which may be an NZ sea lion) is very healthy and I don’t think it will have any problems. He didn’t mind me, but was really wary of Storm my dog, who didn’t want to harass at all, just play.
