Buster had previously been treated by vet Dr Lisa Argilla a few years ago in Wellington. He had to have his toe amputated, so Lisa knew exactly who he was when he appeared again at the hospital this year with a large shark bite to his abdomen. Buster has made the front page of the Otago Daily Times twice this season, with the most recent article being about his release on the Otago Peninsula. Read the article here.
