CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) - A male seal that was rescued in Maine after it became entangled in debris has been released back into the wild.

The seal, named Horseradish, was returned to the sea Thursday at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown.

Horseradish was rescued by The Marine Mammals of Maine in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, on Sept. 1. The 8-month-old seal had needed treatment for parasites.

The seal weighed 57 pounds at the time of its rescue. It gained five pounds during its rehabilitation.
