The seal “Wrong Way Charlie” is back where he belongs

(NEWS10) – The Capital Region’s favorite seal is back home in the Atlantic Ocean.

“Wrong Way Charlie”, as he is known as, was seen multiple times on the Hudson River near Lock One in Halfmoon this summer before getting stuck there earlier this month.

It happened when Canal Operations were doing routine end of the year maintenance. The lock was drained and that’s when rescuers went in to save him.

They had to use a crane to get him out because he weighed a couple hundred pounds.
