Jethou Bumblebee has been at the Shelter for just over 4 weeks and has really grown an appetite.

With 15 to 20 fish being swallowed a day he has put on an additional 10kg which is fantastic news as he was only 17kg on entry.

Staff at the Shelter have decided now to do the rehabilitation work at the GSPCA and we are appealing for donations of fish, especially herring and mackerel.

Geoff George ACO and the main carer for Jethou Bumblebee said 'I am so pleased with his progress.'

'He was near death when we rescued him from Jethou and he is now gaining strength every day.'Christmas Charity Shop thanks to OSA Recruitment

'What we really need now is a good supply of fish to satisfy him.'

'It's been a real struggle trying to get hold of some of the fish and we are appealing for any help.'

'We would like to thank those that have helped already and Jethou Bumblebee really appreciates it and I can certainly tell that by the speed he swallows them.'

At nearly 30kgs Jethou Bumblebee is doing well but it will be a few months before he is fit enough and the weather is kind enough to release him back to the wild and the GSPCA would appreciate any support in his rehabilitation.
