Mystic, Connecticut (WPRI) – Mystic Aquarium has released a rehabilitated female harp seal back into the ocean.
The one and a half year old named Sassafras was released into the waters at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown Thursday.

She began her rehabilitation at the National Marine Life Center in Massachusetts but was later transferred to Mystic Aquarium.
