Rescued Cape Elizabeth seals to return to ocean Thursday
BATH, Maine (WABI) - All hands on deck! Or, flippers.
The two seals rescued from Cape Elizabeth are ready to return to the ocean - and you are invited.
You probably remember this wayward seal, named Dexxy, who ventured out of the water and onto shore three different times during a January snowstorm.
As you can see in the before-and-after photo above, he’s gained strength after the Center says he has been eating more than six-and-a-half pounds of fish every day.
Dexxy’s friend “Sunshine” was also rescued that month.
She has outgrown her white coat to her natural gray.
Described as a “spunky girl with a lot of personality,” she shared her pool with Dexxy.
Both will be released at Head Beach in Phippsburg Thursday at 11 a.m.
The event is free, but donations are welcome.
