Jessie was rescued on 20th November 2010
On the 20th November 2010 a young whitecoat pup about one week old was rescued by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team at Portbeor beach on the Roseland Peninsula and taken to the Seal Sanctuary.

The pup was quite bright and feisty (which is a good sign) but with a fresh injury to the left foreflipper palm and a couple of patches of tarry oil on her whitecoat. As this pup is a girl, she has been named Jessie. When Jessie was rescued, she weighed 11 kilos.

Update: 28th November 2010 - Jessie has now been moved through to the main hospital and is in pen number 2.

(Drum roll please...) she is eating fish all by herself and chasing it around the pool hip hip hooray, and is gaining in confidence.
