Keith the Seal saved
KEITH the Severn seal will not be shot after anglers struck a deal for her safe relocation.
In an announcement put on its Facebook page last night, The Angling Trust said it would not be pursuing an application to Natural England for a licence to shoot Keith.
The decision comes following an agreement with the British Divers Marine Life Rescue service, which will see both organisations working together to relocate the mammal back to the sea.
The news will no doubt delight Keith fans, who launched a petition to save her when it was revealed a marksman could be hired to shoot the seal if she did not move on of her own accord.
