Harp Seal Hangs Out in Houghs Neck Quincy

I photographed this Harp Seal over the weekend. He or she seemed healthy except for a bloated and reddish eye. A biologist at the New England Aquarium says that they are concerned about this seal and have been monitoring it after seeing it in Rockport last week. The aquarium reminds all that the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 prohibits people from getting within 50 feet of any marine mammal and if you see one of these animals, call the aquarium so they can go check it out.
