Montauk seal dies
RIVERHEAD – The 2-day-old gray seal pup that was found on a Montauk beach last week died on Monday night.
Despite efforts from staffers at the Riverhead Foundation and numerous Facebook friends rooting for him, the 35-pound seal, known as “Ozzy,” died of infection. He showed signs of a compromised liver. Biologists think the seal was harassed by onlookers before being rescued.
