Wayward Seal On Route 189 

A lost seal has slipped safely back into the ocean after a weekend of wandering and winding up on a highway in Washington County. Folks traveling along Route 189 in Trescott Township saw the seal in the middle of the road Saturday morning. Some tried to approach the seal, but it scampered off toward some woods. A Marine Patrol officer arrived and, with a half-dozen helpers, grabbed the seal by its flippers and put it into a cage. The officer drove the animal back to a boat launch where it was released back into the sea.
