Baby seal rescued from street in Northern California

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — A northern fur seal pup was recovering Monday at a marine life rehabilitation center where he is being fed fish smoothies after a harrowing weekend in San Rafael where he was almost hit by a car. The baby seal was spotted Saturday by police officers near the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge moments after she flapped across the roadway, narrowly avoiding being hit by several cars. The seal pup, nicknamed “Ivy,” was rescued by volunteers with the Marine Mammal Center and taken to their facility in Sausalito. It was not known how the pup made its way onto San Rafael streets.
