Pluto, a rescued pupPluto was transferred to the seal sanctuary on the 9th of October 2001 from Westward Ho, North Devon. He had been prematurely separated from his mother and had a large wound to his arm-pit and also on the side of his head. He responded well to treatment and it was not long before he was feeding himself. His wounds are almost healed now and he is awaiting movement into the convalescent pool. This will be the last stage in his rehabilitation before he is released back out to sea.
Update: - Pluto was released back into the wild on 22nd of March 2002 along the north coast of Cornwall with Gnasher and Scampi.
He was tagged and a red circle was additionally painted on top of head.
