Riddikulus was rescued on 29th December 2017
Riddikulus, male grey seal pup, was found alone on Sea Palling beach by volunteers on 29th December 2017.

At first it appeared he was just waiting for his mum to come back from hunting for fish but sadly mum never came back. On closer inspection Riddikulus also had some bite wounds on his flippers and was a little worst for wear.
