Mystic Aquarium to Release Seal Pup

The Mystic Aquarium is set to release a young harbor seal pup rescued in Maine.

The Connecticut aquarium's Animal Rescue Team and the Marine Mammals of Maine are set to release the pup at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown.

She was rescued from Saco, Maine, on May 30 by Marine Mammals of Maine. She was determined to be an abandoned pup three to five days old and was transferred to Mystic Aquarium for rehabilitation.

She weighed 21.5 pounds when she was admitted and is now nearly double that weight.

Mystic Aquarium invites the public to help celebrate the return of the seal pup to her ocean environment.
