Hingham Police report:
Resident requests officer check on seal in their backyard today. Appears uninjured. NE Aquarium requests people leave alone.
Patty Neal went to the Aquarium yesterday and spotted a seal that appeared to be pining for the fjords:
One of the harbor seals at the NE Aquarium was laying at the bottom of the tank not moving. I don't think he was asleep.
This morning, the Aquarium replied that the seal really was resting:
In molting season the seals slow down and can even grow algae.
