Friday morning, local biologists returned a rehabilitated harbor seal to the Chesapeake Bay.
The seal, named “Puddy,” was underweight and had shark bites on the left side of his body.
Someone found him stranded south of the Little Island Fishing Pier in Sandbridge last month.
Biologists took him to the Virginia Aquarium’s Marine Animal Care Center .
They treated his wounds and made sure he had plenty of fish to eat.
