Ripley Scott was rescued on 30th October 2011
On the 30th October 2011 we received a call about a pup on the beach at Gwithian, due to its age, condition and the public disturbance, it was decided that it needed to come into the Sanctuary and arrived just after 2.15pm.

Although it was a good body condition, it did have multiple puncture wounds to rear and fore flippers, head, neck and left ear.

The pup is a little boy and been named Ripley Scott.
