SEAL PUP RESCUED FROM PORTH CHAPEL - 22ND JANUARY 2005


This pup was rescued by Tamara, Animal Care Team member Marianne Fellows and myself from Porth Chapel near the Minnack Theatre during the afternoon of the 22 January 2005. It was underweight, had several cuts and punctures to its flippers and also had a small patch of oil on its back.

There have now been well over 30 pups rescued and taken to the National Seal Sanctuary this rescue season, this has been keeping the Animal Care Team hard at work over the winter, but fortunately we are coming towards the end of the rescue season, when they can all have a well-earned rest!
