Gus Gus is a Male Grey Seal Pup around 4 - 5 weeks old. He was found on 15th September by Jonny McCormick & Garrett Trant at the North Shore, Greystones Co Wicklow.
We had a number of reports throughout the day about this not so little pup.
Gus Gus was rescued by 2 of our volunteers Pat & Maureen Clarke and brought straight to the centre.
When he arrived he was very dehydrated and lethargic, he had some nasty wounds on his back and also his back flippers.
Gus Gus was put straight into a kennel as he weighed a massive 35.05Kg :) This is normally our release weight for grey seals.
He was given fluids upon arrival as he was very dehydrated, his wounds were cleaned with antiseptic and he was put on antibiotics to clear up the nasty infection.
Gus Gus will not be with us for too long, his wounds are healing well and he is nice & fiesty at the minute so we do not want him to loose that. As soon as he starts eating on his own we will release him back into the wild.
