Just Resting, Thank You

A seal lying on a dock has to be in trouble, right? Disoriented. Injured. Completely out of its element. That’s what people in New Rochelle thought. For two days they watched as a harp seal lay quietly on a dock near Hudson Park. Finally the police decided to save the poor troubled creature. A cop in a boat cruised toward the animal. But instead of waiting to be rescued, the seal simply slid off the dock and swam away toward Long Island Sound. Apparently sometimes they just need a rest. My friend Ken Valenti wrote about it here this afternoon (and click here to see a photo). Heather Medic of Mystic Aquarium explained it all here two months ago.
