Molly Ringwald, 9 weeks old female seal pup, was rescued on 18th December 2018 from Porthoustock by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) Medics.

This pup was found with fishing line around her neck. Luckily this had not begun to cut into her skin. She also had wounds to her back and flippers.

The pup was taken and treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatories at one of BDMLR´s holding facilities until a hospital pen became available a few days later at Gweek.
