Three young seals were released back into the wild yesterday after being cared for at Wolf Hollow. The three pups were stranded on beaches on Orcas and San Juan Islands in July and were brought to the rehab. center by San Juan County Marine Mammal Stranding Network. The pups were all about a week old when they arrived, were weak and thin and had wounds and infections. After several weeks of care they were all fat and healthy and ready for their life back in the waters around the islands.
They rushed from their transport carriers, splashed into the water and were soon swimming far out into the bay.
