      Harbor seal being released on Friday

      A female harbor seal was released into the ocean Friday morning at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown.

      The seal, named Carson, was rescued in June in Kennebunkport, Maine.

      The seal, about a week old, was deemed an abandoned pup. Carson is believed to be 7 to 8 months old.

      Her rehabilitation began at the University of New England in Maine and continued at Mystic Aquarium.
