San Francisco firefighters on Sunday helped rescue a harbor seal that seemed to be caught in some sort of netting or barrier in the bay.
Firefighters from Station 35 worked with Marine Mammal Rescue volunteers trained in pinniped rescue, the department said Sunday evening.
It was unclear exactly where the rescue took place. Video of the incident posted on Twitter by the department showed at least five people in an inflatable boat using a net to corral the animal in a harbor. The animal was lifted onto a dock using a net.
Fire officials said the seal was on its way to be evaluated at the veterinary facilities of Marine Mammal Rescue in Marin County and would likely be released back to the wild soon as it's healthy.
