Sunning in New London
New London — A harbor seal suns itself Friday on a beach along Pequot Avenue. The seal flopped around on the sand for a short time before returning to the water.
Federal law protects marine mammals and requires humans stay at least 150 feet away. Seals are common in the area this time of year and many haul out onto beaches and rocks to warm themselves in the sun. Mystic Aquarium staff will respond to evaluate a seal if there are visible injuries.
