Detroit Zoo welcomes rescued harp seal

ROYAL OAK, Dec. 22, 2009 (AP): A rescued harp seal has arrived at the Detroit Zoo.

Zoo officials said Monday that Pequot (PEE'-kwat) is named after an American Indian tribe and will live in the suburban Detroit facility's Arctic Ring of Life.

Officials say the 70-pound male is about 1-year-old and was found in August on a Massachusetts beach. A medical examine revealed that Pequot has congenital blindness and likely would not survive if returned to the ocean.

He joins the zoo's only other harp seal, an adult male named Mack.

Zoo officials say adult male harp seals typically weigh about 300 pounds and can live 30 years in captivity.
