A harsh clip shows a seal puppy fighting for her life in a new documentary series on the Atlantic Ocean by Channel 5.
Tomorrow at 9pm, Premiering in the Atlantic: A Year in the Wild follows the animals, which line the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The first episode follows a colony of seals in the Orkney Islands in Scotland, during the berthing season, in early winter.
One segment from yesterday’s episode focuses on the unfortunate fate of the newborn puppy.
The child was pulled by the strong waves of the sea. Her mother, who was moving away from the progress of a male seal, could not come to her aid.
The sad moment exposes the dangers to the puppy’s face in order to survive and make for adulthood.
A harsh clip by Channel 5 shows a seal puppy fighting for its life in a new documentary series on animals living on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, airing tomorrow at 9 p.m.
The show found the seal colony as if the mothers were taking care of their puppies after giving birth.
The mother’s seal shares a strong bond with their puppies and they need to be fed regularly so that the puppies develop a thick layer of fat that will see them through the difficult winter weather conditions.
However, because mothers did not feed while nursing, tension soon increased in the colony.
Dominant males, eager to breed again, loom over females, weakened by their lack of food.
Otter puppies also have to adapt to adverse weather conditions when their parents leave them to feed.
An effigy’s mother was harassed in such a way that a man was trying to breed with her, putting her offspring in peril.
The rising tide threatened to pull the child away, which was resting on the shore.
With each wave, the poor puppy gripped himself from the shore to protect himself.
The white fur of a newborn seal is not waterproof and puppies do not know how to swim, and so sticking to dry land was the only way the puppy survived.
Her mother, still busy trying to protect herself from the male seal, could not go to help her child.
Unfortunately, he was too young to fight the strength of the Atlantic waves on his own, which soon dragged him to his death.
Rum Red Deer of Iceland has learned to eat seaweed during winter at the lowest tide and head to sea
The two beaver puppies, born at the beginning of the winter season, thankfully enjoyed a different fate.
Early life was also a struggle for puppies, who had only three to four weeks to spend with their mothers before going to sea to feed.
In the absence of his parents, Otter Pillar spontaneously manages to avoid adverse conditions from rain showers to bumpy seas.
Rum Red Deer enjoy a seaweed lunch. During winter, the grass is not as nutritious as it is the rest of the year, which is why the animal actually has to live on a marine diet.
In Iceland, one travels to the Arctic coast to score some scraps washed ashore by the waves
Winter is the most harsh season for many species living on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
But many animals have learned to eat and survive to adapt to adverse weather conditions.
In Iceland, rum red deer are forced to venture ashore at low tide to eat seaweed, as the grasses available during winter are not as nutritious as they are used to.
Arctic foxes also have to be made due to the timing of the tides to pick up scraps of food that are washed by the waves.
