BOSTON (CBS) — Seals in the harbor are nothing new to Bostonians, but a little guy has been spotted in the Charles River in recent days…and the New England Aquarium is worried about the upcoming Head of the Charles Regatta.

The aquarium’s Tony LaCasse says the seal probably got into the Charles through the locks when a recreational boat was going up-river.

LaCasse spoke with WBZ’s Diane Stern:

The public is asked not to bother the seal and don’t try to feed it.

This is thought to be the first time this has happened in about 20 years.
