This is really cute. The baby seal washed ashore and was taken in and rehabilitated before being released back into the wild. He looks like he can't quite believe his good fortune when they release him. :)

That is cute. The little guy couldn't get to the sea fast enough after he figured out he was free.

Cute. :)

My father and I once rescued a young seal with an injured flipper. Had to carry the bugger up a narrow fisherman's path with a 100+ foot drop on one side, while the daft little git tried to wriggle free. ;)

When we got to the top, we were greeted by the man the local seal sanctuary had sent. He was 75 if he was a day, and couldn't even lift the seal, so dad carried the thing another mile or so back to the car park. :tongue

Still, t'was worth it. Wish we'd been around to see his recovery and release. :)

I would have preferred seeing a polar bear chomp on its little ass after release, but that's most likely to happen away from the cameras.

Aw! "Really? I can just... go? Srsly?" How sweet!

(And much needed after seeing the pictures from the seal hunt last week. Restores my faith in humanity.)

When Mr. Grr and I were watching it, I was narrating it the same way. :) "Hmmm... I don't know why my door's open, I don't know if it's supposed to be. I wonder if they'll notice if I just poke my head out. Hmmmm.. Maybe I can actually get all the way out. Just for a second. Freedom - woohoo!!"

Yes, I'm a big dork. I'm ok with that.

Me, too. :) Did you see Kitten vs. A Scary Thing (http://www.wimp.com/scarything/)? Another classic. Great music.
