23 The Seal Pup Rejected By Its Own Family

The Seal Pup Rejected By Its Own Family

Posted on September 17, 2011 by team

This seal pup sitting on the beach all alone looks very sad. Is having a reddish-brown skin and blue eyes a crime? Its family rejected the poor thing just because it was albino… These photos were taken on Seal Island (Sakhalin) by some very lucky photographer. Check them out.

When the photographer accidentally saw it, the poor animal was hiding behind a log and waiting for its mom to come and feed it.

“I was very lucky to take a picture of such a rare animal,” – says the photographer.

The seal pup was different from its black brothers in the color of its eyes and skin that’s why its family rejected him.

Unfortunately, the seal is almost completely blind. The chances that it’ll live long in nature are quite small.

However, the story has a happy ending: the seal pup was sheltered by the dolphinarium, where it will get all necessary care.

    probably made-up story. albino animals are white not brown. Seal pup most likely was clubbed by the photographer after the photo-op session.

    He’s so strange and so cute! He looks like a pet the average family might have on Mars, a perfect little space alien.

    I am so happy, but I doubt the truth. I wanna see him now in the dolphinarium doing well and alive.

    Well, this sea lion would not have survived in nature anyway. The parents technically did the right thing.
