TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Long Island Police rescue baby seal from street

This is something you don’t see every day. Police on Long Island were able to save a baby seal that wandered out of the water and into a traffic circle in Southhampton. They believe that the seal swam up a nearby river following a school of fish. After climbing out of the river the animal then got turned around and wandered into the street. Luckily the animal was brought to safety.

Even though this is rare, if you ever do see a baby seal out of it’s element… seals are federally protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Experts say if you come across one you should keep a minimum distance of 150 feet from the animals until someone can some help.
