Felt so helpless too! There is no happy ending in this case.
The ongoing danger to ocean life from all the debris cast into the sea is overwhelmingly awful.
Yes, it’s so very distressing and disheartening.
So very sad. this is an unnecessary danger to sea life.
Yes, it’s so sad that the oceans and seas are so awash with dangerous flotsam and jetsam. So much plastic and worse the lines/ ropes that entangle the creatures. Just want to weep!
I agree. These creatures have done nothing to deserve this and they are so helpless to help themselves when they are injured.
Asad indictment on the thoughtless actions of people who should know better – an poignant example of it.
Isn’t it awful for the sea creatures- entanglements appear to be happening more frequently. Here the NSRI based in Simons Town do duty calls for seals and whales entangled in rope or plastic. Some months ago a crew cut a whale free from fishing line. Apparently it was quite a tricky operation and one of the chaps had to jump into the sea to get alongside the whale. Finally they managed to cut away all the line. As if in a response of thanks the whale stayed with the boat for about ten minutes resting it’s head on the edge of the gunnels before sounding to the depths. The crew were quite emotional when reporting the event.
We humans can be a thoughtless species for sure.
A thought-provoking image.
I’ll be thinking of this image the rest of the day…
Grisly, and heartbreaking.
So sad. The zoo here in Melbourne has a lot of rescued seals that have been injured in the same way. They do a great education programme but I suspect it doesn’t target the right people.
This is so sad. 😢
