A Happy Ending

San Luis Obispo.com, reports:

A prodigal elephant seal that spent nearly two weeks mingling with cattle on the Hearst Ranch east of Highway 1 wandered back into the ocean Friday, with a little help from some trained human friends. Brian Hatfield, marine biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, said that about 9 a.m., a six-person team used tarps, four-wheel drive vehicles, sirens, horns and lights to herd the critter about 300 yards northward on the ranch. The team cut fences, then shooed the
seal across the road and onto a vista-point bluff. Good news for sure.
