I was dispatched for a report of a possible injured seal on Breakwater Beach in Brewster. It is common for seals to come up onto the beach to rest or just sun themselves and we do get calls from citizens concerned for the
animals well being. It is a violation of The Marine Mammal Protection Act to harass or get close to a beached seal. Upon arrival I discovered a very young seal on the beach. It was just starting to molt it’s “puppy” fur. I was not
able to see any injuries and it appeared to be bright eyed and in good health. I contacted the Cape Cod Marine Mammal Stranding Network who responded and monitored the seal until the tide came back in and it went back into the ocean on its own.
