Pumpkin goes back to the wild.

Pumpkin had a delayed release due to the bad weather,he was well over release weight.We always thought Pumpkin would do well in the wild as he is a dominant male who patrols the pool when we are in cleaning to make sure you don't get too close to the others.He is very impressive when charging round the pool roaring at you. He surpassed himself by being well behaved,boxing him up was easy considering his size.Then off to the release site just a hop,skip and a jump and he was down on the shore line.Pumpkin was a little reluctant to go in the water at first just gentle persuasion from Jamie and he was off.There were lots of seals hauled out on the other side of the bay and Pumpkin being a confident boy swam over and hauled out with them it has to be the best release ever,rehab pup mixing with the colony in 5 minutes.
Thanks to all involved in Pumpkin's rehab we couldn't manage without all the support.
love Heather x
