Seal and cows - level 2

Seal and cows - level 2

24-07-2015 15:00

A birdwatcher saw a 5-day-old seal in an unusual place. She was in mud among a herd of cows. The man called for help and people rescued the seal.
Vets helped her rehydrate and gain weight. They also gave her antibiotics.

When she is at least 27 kilograms heavy and she is able to feed herself, they will release her back to the wild.

Nobody knows how exactly the seal got so far from the ocean. People named her “Celebration” and she is getting better.

Difficult words: herd (group), vet (animal doctor), rehydrate (have enough water in the body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
