Buzz was rescued on 14th November 2010
We received several telephone calls about a net entangled seal pup hauled out in Sennen harbour on 14th November 2010.

Members of the animal care team attended the pup and brought Buzz back to the seal sanctuary. It did not have any net-related injuries but did have a badly damaged flipper. Upon arrival at the sanctuary, the pup was approximately 8 weeks old and weighed 17kg.

Update: 28th November 2010 - Buzz seems to be doing well after his operation to remove the broken bone in his rear flipper.
