MAINE (RNN) - A trapped seal pup had a fortunate encounter with lobstermen, and it was caught on video.
Jeffery Door took video of the encounter, which was posted to Facebook.
Willey, a fourth-generation lobsterman from Owl's Head, spotted the trapped pup, pulled him aboard, carefully freed the pup and released it into the Atlantic.
"The more I cut, the more I'd feel him relax," Willey told WCSH.
The video was posted Sunday, and as of Tuesday morning, it has been viewed more than a million times on Facebook.
