A seal was rescued from a homeowner’s driveway in Orleans on Friday.
Members from the International Fund for Animal Welfare were contacted about the seal, which made its way up Rock Harbor Creek.
Rescuers were able to relocate the stranded animal to IFAW headquarters for evaluation; the seal did not appear to be suffering from injury.
The harp seal was later released back into the water on Saturday after further testing.
If you see a stranded seal or any other marine animal, report it to IFAW at 508-743-9548.
