Plastic entanglement

The seal with the plastic rope embedded in his neck, stretching his neck up at right, has become the focus of rescue attempts. A team of rescuers attempted to separate him from the group and cut the rope, but they weren't able to get close enough to him. The rope is very deep in his flesh, making it difficult to get in there and clip it so that it will fall off.

The Marine Mammal Center sent a veterinarian down to look over him and see if she can figure out a solution. She'll be here for the next three days. I'm asking my angels to watch over him and guide him to a location where rescuers can help him.
