Reports of animals emerging from the primordial depths of the Jersey Shore (and with us still suffering from Microburst 2006), it seems nature is pretty annoyed these days.
“>”It was the biggest thing I ever saw come out of the ocean,” said rescuer, Bob Beckett in regards to one of the two (count√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢em, two, they√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢re hard to miss) whales breaching our boundaries.” A little less obvious were the scores of hooded seals washing up and down the east coast. One of whom was suffering from sunburn. So pack that new fancy SPF 400 stuff from France if you have any seals in your family tree.
The center is also caring for a hooded seal, which became stranded with severe sunburn on Long Beach Island last weekend. In fact, other hooded seals have been appearing on beaches up and down the east coast, but experts said they belong in much colder waters.
“They’re Arctic by nature and shouldn’t be down here, but we have no clue why they are,” Schoelkopf said.
