Our attempts to release Zorro

For the last 12 months, the Irish Seal Sanctuary has been following an adult bull seal all along the east coast of the country from Co. Louth to Co. Wexford. This is a relatively tame seal that has come up on public beaches without fear of humans. About 4 months ago, Kevin McCormack of the Sanctuary managed to mark the seal with pink marker along its flank in a "Z" design. Hence, the locals along the east coast who have spotted him have christened him, "The Pink Zorro".
