David Yardley and Lyndsey Dubbley, of British Divers Marine Life Rescue, rushed to the scene, knowing the situation could quickly become fatal for the young marine animal.
They arrived and searched the beach for quite some time before finally finding the pup lying in the sand. The netting was firmly wrapped around his body — but since he was very ready to get out, he still had plenty of fight left.
“He posed a threat to us still, so I jumped onto him and guided his teeth away from us while we cut the net free, inch by inch,” Yardley told The Dodo. “As we peeled the net away from his body, he sprang to life and it quickly became a rodeo ride.”
