Seal to be released into the wild in Rhode Island


A seal is scheduled to be released into the wild in Rhode Island after being nursed back to health at Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The aquarium said Wednesday that it will bring a male harp seal named Puck to Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown Thursday, where he will be returned to the ocean. Puck, who is between the ages of 1 and 2, was found stranded March 5 in Little Compton, R.I. He was brought to the aquarium’s Seal Rescue Clinic and underwent surgery to remove rocks in his stomach.
