West Seattle Seal Pup

We're still in the wild, here in Seattle. Just recently a baby seal, a seal pup, showed up on the shore of Alki beach in West Seattle (directly across from downtown Seattle). Not sure what's happened to it, I hear either it died or it went back in the water. Apparently mom seals beach their pups when they're hunting, so this isn't that all of a rare thing, but it's a bit of a weird choice of beach (Alki is a very busy public beach) to do it on.

Much better than having this kind of seal land on your beach, I'm sure.
