Animal Rescue Update: Eyegore Has Been Released!

Published July 05, 2013

Our last seal patient of the season, Eyegore, was successfully released this morning at Assateague State Park in Berlin, Maryland!

Eyegore was admitted to our Animal Care Center back in mid-April for respiratory and eye infections. He was also suffering from mild alopecia (hair loss). Although both infections cleared, he has permanent corneal scarring of the left eye (which has likely caused him to go partially blind). Aside from his vision problem, Eyegore's healthy appetite and strong personality made him a great candidate for release!

Join us in wishing Eyegore the best of luck out in the big blue!
