The city of Maine helps the determined seal after she repeatedly comes ashore during a snowstorm

During a snowstorm in New England, a “dedicated” seal set out on a mission to explore a town in Maine.

Around 1:30 a.m. Monday, the Cape Elizabeth Police Department received an “unusual call” from a public works worker who was plowing roads after the area was covered with fresh snow. The employee reported seeing something “scurrying” through the neighborhood. The caller said it appeared to be a gray seal exploring the town.

After the call, an officer responded to the area where the seal was found on the road near Fort Williams Park “and enjoyed the stillness of a snowy winter night,” according to the Cape Elizabeth Police Department’s Facebook page. The officer managed to capture the seal and bring it back to its sweet home in the ocean.

But the story doesn’t end here.

“We didn’t know it at the time, but this seal is committed to his goal of exploring Cape Elizabeth,” they said.

NEW ENGLAND STRETCHED BY LAST WINTER STORM

Around 7 a.m., police were again notified that the stubborn seal was back in town, “possibly after the delicious smell of baked donuts out of cookie jars,” the department joked in its post.

Another officer and resident were able to recapture the seal, where it was released onto the beach.

But the seal had yet to curb its appetite for adventure.

Police were notified a third and final time that the seal was heading ashore. About an hour later, the seal was found again while exploring Fort Williams Park. The officer and several citizens were able to capture the seal and bring it back to the beach, where it was released into the sea.

After his third release, the seal “swam away in search of bigger and better adventures.”

In an update shared by the police department, the small seal was collected from Maine’s marine mammals and examined at its rehabilitation center.

The seal pup had a snowy adventure during the New England era and, to the surprise of the local police department, persistently came ashore.

The organization said they gave fluids and food and that they had “a whole new seal”! An inquest revealed that he was “recently weaned from his mother and unfortunately had a difficult time alone,” Marine Mammals of Maine said.

“After all his adventures in the last 24 hours, he spent the whole day sleeping and suckling his fins,” Marine Mammals of Maine shared in a Facebook post.

On Tuesday, the rehabilitation center said the baby seal was “much brighter and much less exhausted”. However, the center said the seal was underweight and must remain at the center for “much needed feeding and care” until it is ready for release.
