The Animal Care Team released four seals earlier today (16th of May 2006). These were Ghost (rescued by the RSPCA in Devon), Bailey (rescued from Porthgwidden at St Ives), Tanglefoot (rescued from Godrevy) and Skiff wearing hat tag ID C8 (rescued from Trevauance Cove, St Agnes).
All four seals were happy to get into the cage and then into the trailer. When we arrived at the beach at Porthtowan, Ghost was first out like a good girl, and the others soon followed suit. All started to play in the surf; body boarding on the waves that were coming in, but soon this was left behind to explore the wide open seas.
The pups in the convalescence pool will be weighed this morning and the bigger pups moved into the nursery pools ready for release some time in the future.
