On Monday morning (6th of February 2006) saw the release of Vixen, Spike and Casper. Casper has been released with no hat tag as when he arrived at the Sanctuary he was very fat and would be very hard to jump. Casper weighed 40.5 kg and was eager to get in to the trailer.
Spike has been hat tagged and his hat number is ‘09’, Spike was a heavy lump and weighted 57 kg. He was happy to join Casper in the trailer.
The team then went in to the nursery pool 1, to decide who was to go next. As they came down the steps Vixen made a point of coming up to the cage. That made the decision for the animal care team and the cage door was opened and in she went. This was of great cheer to the team as Vixen was a very feisty pup, and would try and bite the team every time they went in to her pen. Vixen was weighed and came in at 38.5 kg and has also been hat tagged with a number and a letter ‘C7’ (this is because we have run out of number hats.)
After they were all loaded up, we headed off to Porthtowan on the north coast of Cornwall to reels them.
Luckily we managed to get close to the waters edge. The trailer was open and first out was Vixen, who headed straight out in to the water Casper and Spike were a little more hesitant but after a good look around the decision between the trailer and the open sea, the water won and they headed out.
