Local lobstermen save seal pup caught up in fishing net

NOW: Baby seal rescued

(NEWS CENTER) — It may be the cutest video you see all day.

Jeremy Willey, a fourth-generation lobsterman, born and raised in Owls Head, was offshore lobstering Monday about 10-12 miles below Matinicus Rock when he saw a seal pup floating in a rope.

His sternman, Jeffrey Door, pulled the seal aboard and then Jeremy slowly and safely cut the little seal free.

The moment was captured on video.
