"Pup 49" rehabilitates in Mystic

MYSTIC, CT - 3.29.2013 - HARBOR SEAL - Visitors to Mystic Aquarium watch "Pup 49" during her afternoon feeding time. Pup 49 is about 8 months old and was rescued last July by the New England Aquarium after a brutal attack by an older seal left deep wounds all over her body. She's not a trained seal and will not be released to the wild. Veterinarians amputated one of her two hind flippers to prevent a stubborn infection from spreading throughout her body.
