Skeeter was rescued on 23rd November 2009
On 23rd November 2009 we received a telephone call from a member of the public who was on the beach at Porthgwarra and was concerned about a seal. We sent the team out and they found the pup on the beach with puncture wounds and a high temperature, and it was decided to bring the pup back to Gweek.

In the SOS Seal Hospital the team carried out an assessment and found the pup to be 6 weeks old and weighing 19.5 kilos. All her wounds were cleaned and treated and she was started on a course of antibiotics, as this pup is a little girl and has been named Skeeter.
