Rehabbed seals released in Connecticut
Fifteen rehabilitated harp seals were recently released back into the wild by Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The seals had been taken to Mystic in April after their original home, the Marine Animal Lifeline facility in Maine, was closed by the National Fisheries Service. The seals had been treated for a variety of random ailments, such as parasites, and and are now swimming north towards the cooler waters they're used to. Six seals remain in rehabilitation, but will hopefully be released soon.
