Harbor Seal is Back in the Wild

Aug25

Harbor Seal in care at PAWS prior to his release We're so happy to tell you that the Harbor Seal we updated you about last week, is now back in the sea! This was the seal who was taken to a Westport, WA hotel room by well-meaning, but unknowing vacationers.

Yesterday, after loading the now-50-pound seal into a dog crate for a long drive from Lynnwood to Ocean Shores, PAWS' Naturalist Kevin Mack and Wildlife Rehabilitator Raina Domek carried the crated seal down to the water and set him free. The seal, who had only known a pool with walls the last 12 weeks, took a bit to get his bearings. Eventually he took advantage of the vast open water around him and swam away.

You can read the full story and see video and photos of the release in the Seattle Times and on KIRO TV.
