Indus was rescued on 5th November 2013
Indus, a female juvenile seal, was rescued from Polzeath on 5th November 2013 and taken to the RSPCA´s West Hatch Wildlife Centre in Taunton, Somerset, for treatment.

The pup was transferred to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary for her next stage of rehabilitation, to learn how to compete for fish with other seals. Hopefully Indus will be released back into the wild in the next month or so.

Indus´s flipper tag number is 80071 (orange).
