Joy was rescued on 30th November 2016
This little common seal pup was rescued on 30th November 2016 from Salthouse after she was found on the beach looking a little underfed and with many small bite wounds. She is around 5 months old but is underweight. This pup has been named Joy.

Joy also has some wheezing breathing but is otherwise well. She has lots of fight in her so the Animal Care Team are hopeful she will make a speedy recovery.
