Baby seal Ksyusha, who was found abandoned on the shore of Gulf of Finland three weeks ago, tasted fish for the first time on Thursday, as seen in footage published by the Baltic Seal Friends Foundation.
The seal pup was around three days old when the vets found her in the beginning of February. How Ksyusha got separated from her mother remains unknown, but the seal centre workers believe it was... Еще due to a recent storm.
Since her rescue, Ksyusha has been held at the foundation’s centre near St. Petersburg, getting nourishment and around-the-clock care.
The next mission for Ksyusha is to get better at swimming and to get used to seal’s normal diet. The seal centre hopes that she will eventually be able to return to the wild.
