BOGART - Rescued on 24th January 2006
Bogart was rescued from Sennen on the 24th of January 2006. He had a little oil on his body, some superficial puncture wounds, and a broken jaw. He weighed 17.5 kg and was around 10 weeks old.

Bogart will be going to the local vets to have his jaw wired back in place. He is also receiving antibiotics and a course of pain relief.
Update: 28th January 2006 - Bogart went to the local vets on Thursday 26th of January 2006 to confirm what we thought might be a broken jaw. The vet checked Bogart over and confirmed it was a little loose and the best thing for him was to put a piece of wire through his jaw to hold it in place, so it would heal. This piece of wire will stay in place for 3 - 4 weeks until the jaw has healed.
