Patient Updates

Sean Cannery was released after 68 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Sean has moved on to the largest pre-release pool!

Sean is doing well! He's made it all the way to a pre-release pool where he's working on his hunting and food competition skills. He's also gained a lot of weight as you can see...

Sean was malnourished when he was admitted. He is being fed a milk formula (5 times a day), and he has already gained a little weight. He is also being treated with antibiotics, and staff are keeping a close eye on him.
