The Alaska SeaLife Center is taking care of its first Ribbon Seal. The 220-pound female was rescued yesterday from a muddy area at the tip of Cook Inlet, near Wasilla. She was stranded about 400 yards from the closest water at high tide. Tim Lebling is the Center’s stranding coordinator; he says the Seal was far off its normal course.
