There was probably a prehistoric time when that wasn't uncommon

If it's not disturbing anyone, let the novelty stay. Just remind people not to engage with it.

That a harbor seal - a marine mammal - would seek out a freshwater habitat is highly unusual, according to local wildlife officials.

That's because he didn't have a mother to guide him.

Maybe it was going clubbing.

Typical.  Got to LI and get a skin disease or STI.

This seal knew what he was doing and was embracing the innate spirit of exploration. This is how species adapt and expand in the face of tumultuous climactic change

Will they seal the deal on what to do with it?

First thought was of the recent Seal with the Eagle for whatever  city it was.

Pissing local fishermen.

He was later rescued by the New York Marine Rescue Center, which treated Seal 246 for an infection and a skin condition called "seal pox," which he had contracted after swimming down to Long Island's Atlantic Beach.

Same thing happened to buddy of mine back in the summer of 2012 while vacationing in the area; lots of party girls and vacation homes.

/We called it herpes back then though

Imagine getting pulled over by some law enforcement officer and that seal was on the side of the car.

I'd be sure that a meth head was trying to rob me. Or worse, someone who wants to be a cop--but for various reasons cannot become one.

That story was butchered badly by whoever edited it for length and made no sense.

I read the town name as Sugartits, so probably just go with that for the town seal. Might draw up some tourism

Cute story. If he really wants to be there, let him stay. No sense in stressing him out trying to move him..

Wildlife officials have called the seal's behavior "unprecedented."

Then one could call it an UN-presidented seal

All right but why was he treated by the New York Marine Rescue Center and where'd they release him?

"Seal pox." Translation: Skin infection caused by the 'civilized world' dumping industrial pollution, ag runoff, and  boatloads of buttmonkey sewage into whatever waterway's handy.
