A baby seal made an appearance at the Bayside Marina.

There was a loose seal spotting in Bayside on Sunday.

A baby seal was observed at the Bayside Marina at around noon near the water off the boat slip. According to marina manager Eric Pesa, the little guy was spotted by a jogger, and after a crowd of people began to gather around him someone called 911 to help the animal.

Upon their arrival, police, the Department of Environmental Protection, and nonprofit the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research kept a wide berth around the seal until it finally flopped into the water on its own at around 6 p.m.

Pesa said that authorities informed the crowd that the animal’s mother was likely to be somewhere in the area, as baby seals would usually not travel alone.

“It was quite a show. There were people taking pictures,” said Pesa. “First time I’ve seen one.”
