Wayward Seal Waddles Onto Maine Highway

Wayward Seal Waddles Onto Maine Highway

TRESCOTT TOWNSHIP, Maine (AP) A wayward seal is back in its ocean home after making its way onto land, crossing several front yards and a horse pasture, and straddling a state highway in eastern Maine.

Motorists came across the seal Saturday morning in the middle of state Route 189 in Trescott Township in Washington County.

The animal drew the attention of several passers-by, who speculated it had crawled out of nearby Whiting Bay. When approached, the seal lumbered down an embankment and toward some woods.

After Marine Patrol Officer Russell Wright arrived, he and half a dozen others grabbed the seal by its flippers and tail and lifted it into a cage.

From there, Wright drove the animal to a boat launch and released it back into the ocean.
