She battled to stop him getting into the Thames in Hammersmith, West London, last week, knowing he could not swim with a broken flipper.

But she had to go to A&E when the seal bit her thigh.

His injuries meant he was put down.

Rachel, a vet for 15 years, said: “I’m pretty devastated.

“The injuries must have been far worse than they appeared.

Rachel is now considering joining the British Divers Maritime Life Rescue — which was called to treat Freddie.

‘Freddie Mercury’ the seal is mauled by a dog on the bank of the River Thames after entertaining walkers for weeks
