Aquarium to release two seal pups


An animal rescue team from Mystic Aquarium plans to release two seal pups into the waters off Rhode Island. The five-month-old harbor seal pups — named Hershey and Brunswick — were thin and dehydrated when they were found in Maine. They received treatment at the University of New England’s Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center in Biddeford, Maine, before being transferred to the aquarium in Mystic. The seals are to be released at a state beach in Charlestown, R.I., on Tuesday. (AP)
