The story is getting a lot of attention because of the emotions evoked by this poor, struggling, abandoned baby seal. Major news outlets have covered the story, including ABC, NBC and the like. After all, it's a huge story: a baby seal was struggling for life.
It's a shame news outlets don't see fit to give the same attention to the human babies struggling for life at the hands of abortionists across America, like Kermit Gosnell, who witnesses testified left a baby "flailing about in a toilet trying to get out" after surviving the abortion attempt Gosnell made on his life.
But then again, in our current culture, human babies aren't on the same level as baby harbor seals. Unlike humans who survive the womb in an abortion attempt and are subject to whatever the nearest adult deems fit, harbor seals are protected under federal law, and it is unlawful to approach, feed or handle them in any way that may harm them. Similar federal protections are extended to things like turtle eggs.
Human lives, however, apparently aren't so worthy. Those helpless, defenseless human babies in the womb are on their own. And you can be certain the media won't cover the story of any child who loses his life during abortion or at the hands of a doctor after surviving the attempted abortion. I guess you'd have to be a seal to warrant that kind of media concern and attention.
