Rescue attempted of seal with rope around its neck

A rope is tightly woven around the neck of a seal cow at Surtsey island off the South coast of Iceland. Several attempts have been made at trying to help the animal but it's too scared and keeps swimming out to sea. 

This is reported by the Environmental Agency of Iceland. Further attempts to rescue the seal will be made in the next few days.  They also report that the seal seems to be suffering from shortage of breath.
