Baby Seal Rescued from Parking Deck

Baby sealFirefighters in Redwood City, Calif., don’t get a lot of calls for parking deck rescues, and certainly not to rescue baby seals out of garages. But that’s exactly what happened yesterday, and the resulting adorableness was enough to make the news (and it’s perfect for a Monday morning).

Santos, a young northern fur seal pup, made his way into the garage and was spotted by a citizen, who called the fire department. Firefighters scooped the little guy up and took him back to their station, where he posed for some adorable photos before cuddling up for a nap, as one does, and being transported to a local marine hospital. If all goes well from here, he’ll be released back into the wild–where we hope he’ll stay this time.
