A few people got to witness an uncommon sight on a North Carolina beach recently – a seal sighting.
WITN reported that the sighting took place Saturday along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, near Rodanthe.
Seals do occasionally appear on the coast, according to the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. The seal appeared to be fine.
It is illegal to interact with seals as they are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
