Mystic Aquarium releases seal pup



CHARLESTOWN, RI- At approximately 10 a.m. this morning, a young Harbor seal pup named Little Dipper was released at Blue Shutters after months of specialized care.

The young pup, a male approximately 7 months old, was rescued from Ogunquit, ME in July by Marine Mammals of Maine as an abandoned pup between 6 and 8 weeks old.  He was transferred to Mystic Aquarium for rehabilitation, where their Animal Rescue Team ensured he completed his medical treatments to achieve a full and strong recovery.
