Massachusetts officials ask people to leave seal that showed up in local pond, alone

“Please be advised that Beverly Animal Control and the Beverly Police Department are aware there is a seal in Shoe Pond at the Cummings Center in Beverly. Please refrain from calling the Police Department and Animal Control to report the seal.

** Please remain on the outside of the fence surrounding Shoe Pond and refrain from feeding the seal. **

Animal Control has been in touch with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the recommendation at the moment is to let the seal be as it is safe and healthy.

The seal does not appear to be in any type of distress and has the ability when it is ready to go back into the river. There is plenty of fish and water in Shoe Pond for the seal to hang out for a while.

Thank you for your time and concern about this matter.” -Beverly Animal Control.
