Beach Cleared for Hurt Seal

Scroll down to content

I was walking the dogs yesterday at Carmel-by-the-Sea beach when a police officer began waving at me. Turns out an injured harbor seal was making its way towards downtown Carmel. The beach was cleared to protect the seal from further stress. Marine mammal rescue was on its way.

I took this cell phone photo from quite a distance. But it tells a story. People here respect the delicate nature of a seal under stress.

I hope this story has a happy ending. I witness about one seal rescue per year. But, I also see the end of life as well.

A dead seal on the Carmel Coast late last year.
