Sometimes animals just get lost or separated from their families or friends; but even when they do, they can usually manage on their own if they are an adult.
But when a baby gets lost, it can be a recipe for disaster that could potentially end in a heartbreaking situation if the animal is left on its own without the safety and protection of its own kind.
When one couple found a baby seal all alone on the beach, they contacted the Alaska SeaLife Center, who told them that the little pup was in need of a rescue!
The four-day-old seal had been out of the water for more than 12 full hours, which mean it was in dire need of some extra attention.
Check out the video below to see one of the cutest seals you will probably ever have the chance of seeing.Whizzco
