A harbor seal that was living in Virginia Beach, Va. is back in the ocean again.

"Puddy" the seal was picked up near a fishing pier in December with shark bites on his body. He was taken to an aquarium for treatment.

After getting better and gaining 13 pounds, he was ready to head home again.

Puddy hesitated a little bit when he was let go, but that didn't last long.
