Mystic Aquarium releases rescued seal pup on RI beach
Charlestown, R.I. (AP) — A harbor seal pup rescued in Maine last summer was released Friday morning back into the ocean at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown, R.I.
Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut says Carson is estimated to be around 7 to 8 months old. She was rescued in Kennebunkport on June 10 and brought to Mystic Aquarium two days later. Rescuers believe she was just a few days old.
The aquarium says she has fully recovered and adjusted from a formula to a fish diet, and now she is ready to live in the wild.
