Wall-E rescued on 22nd January 2011
Wall-E was rescued from Mousehole on 22nd January 2011. With the team busy doing a clinical assessment on another seal pup who just arrived in the hospital earlier that day, the sanctuary contacted members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team who were despatched to collect the pup.

An hour or so later he arrived at the Sanctuary and was put into an isolation pen, so that the team could start a clincial assessment of the pup. Wall-E weighed 19.5 kilos and found to have puncture wounds to rear flippers and problems breathing.
