Life may seem like an endless beach party, basking, frolicikng and eating lobster for the Grey Seal of Cape Cod. If so, it is also fraught with moments of fear and terror. There are also propeller strikes and shark attacks. Cape Cod has become home to one of the largest populations of great white sharks on the East Coast and the surfers that thronged to the beach are largely gone. When I was a boy, I remember my father saying that fisherman shot the seal because they ate too many fish. Now with protections and success they face other problems. This poor fellow appears to be recuperating and I can not guess what made the marks on his side.

Paul, although seals are very social, I suppose that this poor, seriously injured, fellow will soon meet its death. Not capable anymore to catch the fish needed to continue its life, while its friends and relatives don't supply for its necessary food. Seals don't have medical care, like humans have.
A sad story, but life can be cruel.
A good and touching photograph!
