Local Seal Headed for the Big Apple

A harbor seal rescued from the Fore River in Portland last May will be taking up residence at the Central Park Zoo in New York. He has undergone rehabilitation courtesy of the Marine Animal Lifeline.
The seal, who could not be transferred to the wild because of vision problems, was loaded into a kennel and placed in a truck Thursday morning; he'll spend 30 days in quarantine before being introduced to the public in New York City. [Link]
