NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — A trio of seals with literary names have been released back into the ocean.

On Friday morning, the Mystic Aquarium Animal Rescue Team released three seals back into the ocean from a private shoreline in North Kingstown.

The seals, all named after authors: Hemingway, Dragon and Fitzgerald, were presumably abandoned by their mothers shortly after birth.

The seals were nursed back to health by the Mystic team for about three months.
