On the 17th January 2012 we received a call about a pup at Mawgan Porth in Newquay.
The pup was malnourished weighing in at 16 kilos and would need the care of the team at the Sanctuary. In isolation 2 a clinical assessment revealed the pup was around 10 weeks old, malnourished with a gash to its right rear flipper. The pup was found to be a little boy and has been named Bob Champion.
