Apparently lost, this seal pup was found roaming a small Swedish town's harbor. Wild Animal Administrator, Lars Wiklund, says that it's natural for baby seals to be left on their own when they're two to three weeks old. But he's confident this pup can take care of itself. SOUNDBITE: Lars Wiklund, wild animal administrator, provincial government of Vasternorrland, saying (Swedish): "Don't touch or pat it. They have sharp teeth and can defend themselves if they feel threatened. This pup will realize this isn't a good place to be, so I think things will work out well for it."
