Cape Cod Seal Pup Season Comes Early
April 27, 2012
Federal scientists say the Northeast’s harbor seal pupping season is starting two months early, and they’re urging people to be cautious when they see the young animals, according to an article in the Cape Cod Times.
Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say harbor seals tend to give birth in May and June on rocky islands, ledges or sandy beaches along the coast. But this year, seal pup sightings were reported in March.
