Reason for Rescue : The pup was found to have a very high temperature, respiratory infection and minor wounds.

The seal pup was rescued by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team and transported to the Seal Sanctuary for treatment.
Upon arrival at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary´s hospital, he was put into isolation pen where a full clinical assessment was carried out by members of the Animal Care Team. The pup was prescribed antibiotics as a precaution to fight any infections he may be harbouring. The pup was named Hubble.
Hubble Update - 24th February 2014 : Hubble has completed a course of treatment and will hopefully be moved down to the outside pools soon. He is a quiet seal and although he makes a lot of mess, he is eating fish for himself already!

Hubble currently weighs 23kgs.
