Teign was rescued on the 3rd of January and is our first pup of 2005. Found at Porthcurno, aged about 10 weeks and weighing 15.5kg. She has a swollen jaw on the left side and a swollen right flipper, Teign also has a high temperature. She is being force fed fish and is on antibiotics and pain killers.

Update 6th May 2005 - Teign along with Brant and Lune were released back into the wild on 4th May 2005; all the pups went off very quickly. The next morning we had a phone call to say that Teign has turned up in the Hayle Estuary; we are keeping a close eye on her and hope she will go out when the tide comes in.   Teign´s hat tag number is 41.
