CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) - A harbor seal pup rescued in Maine last summer has been released back into the ocean on a beach in Rhode Island.

Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut released the female seal pup Carson on Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown on Friday.

Carson is estimated to be around 7 to 8 months old. She was rescued in Kennebunkport June 10 and brought to Mystic Aquarium two days later. Rescuers believe she was just a few days old.

The aquarium says she has fully recovered and adjusted from a formula to a fish diet, and now she is ready to live in the wild.
