HAMPTON, New Hampshire (CBS) — Sunday felt like the perfect beach day…for a seal to be released back into the ocean.

Mack, a one-year-old harp seal, had been resting up at the Seacoast Science Center for the past month after he was found sick.

He spent some time in Bourne and is now “fit, fat, and ready to return to the wild!”
