Animals and Wildlife

A seal named for the New England Patriots‘ wide receiver headed home on Tuesday!

Edelman, named for the 2019 Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman, was released by Mystic Aquarium‘s animal rescue team at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown, Rhode Island.

The seal was considered to be abandoned at birth and was rescued last May when he was just a one week old pup!

Edelman now weighs a healthy 60 pounds and is ready for life at sea!
