A harbor seal pup found abandoned in Maine has been released back into the wild in Rhode Island after spending several months in rehabilitation at the Mystic Aquarium. Aquarium officials released the 5-to-6-month-old pup named Hubble on Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown on Friday. Video released by the aquarium showed Hubble moving down the beach and into the ocean. The male pup was rescued in May at Drakes Island Beach in Wells, Maine. He began his rehabilitation at the University of New England in Biddeford before being moved at around two weeks old to the Connecticut aquarium. (AP)
