Yarmouth Police say the seal pup was found waddling on Route 6A in Yarmouth Port late Friday.
Police and Amazing Animal Ambassadors were able to put the seal in a cage and hold onto it until wildlife officials arrived.
Police said on Facebook Saturday that the pup was given a clean bill of health and has been released back to the ocean.
Authorities say they have nicknamed the seal "Houston" after Kevin A. Houston, a U.S. Navy Seal from Cape Cod who was killed in Afghanistan.
