RYE, N.H. (AP) - A week-old emaciated harbor seal pup has been rescued at Star Island at the Isles of Shoals.

The pup, who’s been named Rose, was found Tuesday, without her mother anywhere in sight.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1kRkVkA) Ashley Stokes, Seacoast Science Center marine mammal rescue coordinator, decided to remove the animal and take her for rehabilitation at National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts.

Stokes said the pup’s health was rapidly decreasing and she was extremely thin.
