The Detroit Zoo has a new seal that was found stranded along the coast of Maine. The zoo in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak said the female grey seal pup turned up near Georgetown and was found by Marine Mammals of Maine.

The seal arrived at the Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center in March, got to the Detroit Zoo in June, and now weighs 140 pounds.
