CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) - Connecticut’s Mystic Aquarium has released three seal pups in waters off Charlestown, Rhode Island, after they were rescued earlier this year.

The harbor seal pups were returned to the water at Blue Shutters Beach on Thursday.

The aquarium says the pups had been abandoned shortly after birth. Mystic’s first responders found one of the pups in North Kingstown, while two others were rescued on the coast of Maine.

The pups- named Crystal, Potch and Topaz -spent four to six months in rehabilitation. All three are between four and five months old.

The aquarium says it has successfully rehabilitated and released 20 seals so far this year.
