A seal that officials had been trying to lure out of a Massachusetts pond has turned itself into the local police department.

According to Beverly Police, at approximately 2:30 a.m. this morning, PD had a visit from a seal affectionately named Shoebert the seal. Shoebert made his way out of Shoe Pond and traveled through the Cummings Center parking lot and came to the side door of the police station for some help.

Within a short period of time, the entire midnight shift, Beverly Animal Control, Members of NOAA, International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Beverly Fire Department all came to the rescue of Shoebert. They were able to get Shoebert into a special wildlife carrier without incident.

Shoebert appeared to be in good health and was a little sassy in the early morning hours.

Shoebert was transported to the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut for observation and any needed medical care before his future release to the wild.
