In a story that's gone viral nationally, Ocean Shores WA police officers were able to recently rescue a seal that came ashore, but was trapped in a segment of plastic netting, including having it tangle around the sea creature's neck.

One of our sales associates, Jonathan, is a former Pasco police officer and knows the Ocean Shores authorities involved.

They were able to get the little guy extricated, but not without some eye-opening snapping and moves from the seal, who was obviously naturally reacting out of fear. Authorities say situations like this are not completely uncommon, as sea life often get tangled in nets, plastic, and other garbage found in the ocean.
