CapeCodToday: An International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Marine Mammal Rescue & Research team recently freed a seal which was tangled in a buoy line in the Pleasant Bay area of Chatham [Massachusetts].

The distressed mammal had become so entangled in the fishing gear that it struggled to reach the water’s surface to breathe. Rescuers had to first catch the young seal, then free it from the dangerous situation.
