Bronte was rescued on 16th January 2012
On the 16th January 2012 we received a call from Mousehole about a pup with injuries that meant it would have to come in to the Sanctuary.

The pup was put in isolation pen 3, it was around 10 weeks old and weighed 18 kilos and did indeed have some very nasty puncture wounds to the right hock and a scratch to the corner of its left eye. The wounds were treated which was a difficult task as this pup is feisty. The pup is a little girl has been named Bronte.

Update: 28th January 2012 - Bronte is still in the main hospital pen number 3.

Update: 24th April 2012 - Bronte is in the convalescent pool, doing really well and putting on weight. The rescued pups are enjoying the piggy back rides around the pool with the resident seals, but it is going to be a few more weeks before any pups are ready for release back to the wild.
Seal Release 29th May 2012 Update: 30th May 2012 - On Tuesday 29th May 2012 the Cornish Seal Sanctuary´s Animal Care Team decided to do a seal pup release as the weather in Cornwall was good and the high tides were on their side.

Members of the Animal Care Team drove to Gunwalloe which is a short distance from the seal sanctuary and managed to release nine pups Bronte, Steve Irwin, Sam, Van Persie, Mary, Hawk, Carwardine, Ellis and Tiny Tim back to the wild.
