3 recovering seals released into the wild

CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) — Three seals have been released back into the wild in Rhode Island, after being nursed back to health at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut.

The aquarium brought two harp seals and a grey seal to Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown on Thursday, where they returned to the ocean.

The grey seal, named Curie, was only one or two months old when it was rescued in South Kingstown in April 2013.

The harp seals, Pluto and Pandora, were both rescued in Maine this year. Pluto was found on Cheabeague Island on Feb. 18, while Pandora was rescued from Kinney Shores in Saco, Maine, on March 17. They were both admitted to the Marine Animal Rescue Center at University of New England before being moved to Mystic.
