Admit Weight: 18 lbs

Progress Notes: Bongela is a Pacific harbor seal pup who was picked up on Indian beach in Trinidad because he had severe lacerations and punctures to his face, and his breathing was labored.  Bongela had been attacked by a dog, and is a good example of why dogs should be leashed on beaches where seal pups are found.  Bongela’s face healed well, and he was released on July 29th with Wilson and Georgia.
