(WXYZ) - You could say the Detroit Zoo sealed the deal to provide a new home for a rescued mammal named Jersey.
The seal was deemed "too friendly" to be released back into the wild in New Jersey about seven months ago.
The Marine Mammal Stranding Center ultimately made the decision to send the seal to the Detroit Zoo after she had been picked up by volunteers several times over the course of eight months after being treated and released. In one instance, Jersey was spotted being petted on a beach.
