A baby seal that was found waddling down a Massachusetts highway has now safely been returned to the ocean.

Police say the seal was spotted on Route 6A in Yarmouth Port on Cape Cod late on Friday.

Authorities, with the help of rescue group Amazing Animal Ambassadors, were able to put the seal in a cage and hold onto it until wildlife officials arrived.

The seal pup was eventually given a clean bill of health.

The animal was released back into the ocean on Saturday, according to Yarmouth Police.

Authorities said they nicknamed the seal ‘Houston’ after Kevin A. Houston – a US Navy Seal from Cape Cod who was killed in Afghanistan.

Police say they believe the pup traveled up a nearby frozen creek and ‘made his appearance Navy Seal style.’

‘Our very special late night visitor has been given a clean bill of health by wildlife officials and been released back in to the ocean,’ officers said.

‘Thank you for visiting us and stay warm and safe out there buddy.’
