Security Camera Captures Seal Giving Birth on Dock

A harbormaster captured rare footage of a harbor seal giving birth on a dock between yachts at Elliot Bay Marina in Seattle. Typically, harbor seals deliver their babies on the shore, on ice floes or in the water, but this particular mommy-to-be couldn't get to any of those places before popping out her baby seal. Brian Kaloper, the harbormaster, found it peculiar that the seal decided to rest on the dock. When he checked the security camera, he noticed something even stranger: She was giving birth. "It was pretty incredible," Kaloper said. Watch the video below to see the incredible sight for yourself.

Just read that KOMO News spoke with dock hands and they saw the mom and pup in the water this morning with the pup riding on the mom's back and having a good time.....
