BALTIMORE (AP) - A grey seal pup rescued at Delaware’s Bethany Beach this Easter with a broken jaw is finally healthy enough to be returned to the wild.

The Daily Times of Salisbury (https://delmarvane.ws/1ALRYAt ) reported Wednesday the seal, named Lily, will be released June 9 at 9:30 a.m. at Assateague State Park.

Officials say after being captured by Lewes’ Marine Education Research and Rehabilitation Institute April 15 the seal went to the National Aquarium in Baltimore for rehabilitation. Her jaw has now healed and she has gained more than 12 pounds.

The aquarium says for the past two months Lily was fed a diet of herring and capelin but also provided foraging activities for her to work on her hunting skills.
