Mystic Aquarium to release gray seals in Narragansett

Posted: Updated:
NARRAGANSETT, R.I. - Mystic Aquarium is planning to release a pair of female gray seals Thursday morning, July 17.

Cassiopeia and Athena have been in the aquarium's care since March.

Cassiopeia was rescued from the Cliff Walk in Newport; she has recovered from wounds to her right side and right flipper, and is ready to be released. 

Athena was transferred to Mystic from the Virginia Aquarium earlier this year. She was treated for pneumonia, and an infection in her jaw. 

Both seals will be released from Monahan's Dock at the State Pier on Ocean Road in Narragansett, at 10 a.m. Thursday.
