Lois Lane, a female grey seal pup, was rescued from Mevagissey on 8th May 2015 by Jeff and Ollie Taylor members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) medic team. Ollie had only just qualified as a medic the previous Saturday, so he was pleased to help his dad with the rescue of this pup.

The pup was found to have rapid breathing, a high temperature and was coughing; he was also suffering from seal pox.
