To feel a bit sorry for Keith the Seal?

(32 Posts)

Here. The seal has been living in the River Severn quite happily for a year and now they want to catch him/her and release into the sea.

All because the anglers are moaning. How many fish can one seal actually eat? confused

They are misery guts Sparkling. I love the thought that the Severn is clean enough that Keith is living there happily

The anglers are just jealous that Keith catches more fish than they do grin

Me too CMOT. I feel sorry for Keith. I hope he/she doesn't follow the fishy trail.

I don't understand fishing though TBH.

We need a petition!

Keith is female according to local paper.

Poor Keith. I feel like going down there to save him from the anglers.

I hope Keith swims straight back.

I hope Keith finds a sealy girlfriend and has hundreds of little Keiths.

Oh shit no time for a petition it's happening now, poor Keith sad

One of the comments in the newspaper says he was eating ducks. Do seals eat ducks? confused

Poor Keith. He can live in my bath if he likes.

Cheers sashh, petition signed and shared on fb

Yep, she was eating ducks in Bewdley.
I eat chips and teddy grays when I'm in Bewdley

They want to shoot him sad

DH was born in Bewdley. <irrelevant>

Signed. Just watch out to uncheck from a mailing list for whales before you submit! Sneaky.

I am very confused by it all. is she really a nuisance?

CMOTDibbler Fri 22-Nov-13 15:22:53

Its not exactly as if ducks are endangered though is it? Pike eat ducks, as do foxes and dogs but no ones getting rid of them (well, foxes maybe)

I just can't imagine a seal eating a duck. confused I have a horrible feeling this may not end well CMOT. sad

It seems that anglers think they've more right to the fish (for sport)than Keith doing what seals do naturally. She won't find a mate in Worcestershire though.

She did disappear for a while several months ago - maybe went back to the sea before deciding she preferred Worcs.

She's a local celeb when she swims through.

Have I left it too late to see her?

UsedToBeNDP Fri 22-Nov-13 18:09:24

I don't know. There was a big drive to protect her when this plan was last mooted (8-12 months ago?). It's a real shame.
