Nikola Tesla was rescued on 26th October 2011
Tesla, is named after Nikola Tesla famous for his patents and theoretical work which formed the basis of the modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems and is Wayne Kempe´s hero.

Tesla was rescued from Rinsey on the 26th October 2011 by Clare McGowan, Wayne Kempe and Craig Hardman. This little boy with a very healthy weight of
26.5 kilos and must have been fed really well by Mum for a time, but was now not self feeding, so when found was hungry, dehydrated and exhausted.
