Seal Freed From Commercial Fishing Line in Walvis Bay, Namibia

Naude Dreyer, who owns a kayaking business in Walvis Bay, Namibia, rescued a seal he found struggling on a beach with commercial fishing line wrapped around its neck.

Dreyer shared this footage of the rescue to Instagram on March 22.

Dreyer, who often assists the work of the Namibian Dolphin Project, can be seen cutting the animal free and releasing it to the ocean in this video.

Dreyer commented in the post that the seal was one of two that he helped that day.

He blamed the “usual suspects,” thick commercial fishing lines, for the seal’s injuries.

Dreyer told Storyful, “This is one of many seals at the colony that is entangled in man-made waste.

Last year my team and i rescued over 300 animals caught up in rubbish.

This particular one was a bit bigger than the usual rescue cases, so I had to be extra careful.

She nearly managed to get a bite out of me on my first attempt!” He added in the original post that while the wound on the seal in this video “looks terrible” Dreyer hoped they would “heal up quite quickly in the salt water.” Credit: Naude Dreyer via Storyful
