Bagshot was rescued on 11th February 2010
We received a call on 11th February 2010 from a member of the public at Perranporth to inform us that there was a seal on the beach with a severe netting injury around its neck.
Volunteers were despatched to the beach and having found the pup was quickly brought back to the Sanctuary.

In Isolation pen 1 the pup was weighed and found to be 26 kilos and in a good body condition. The net which had managed to get caught around its neck and front flippers was removed, the wound cleaned and a course of antibiotics started, there were also a few minor wounds to its rear flippers. This pup is a little girl around 12 weeks old and has been called Bagshot.
