Adorable: Seal takes first steps of freedom

(CBS) - Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre is a Canadian organization dedicated to rehabilitating injured or orphaned wild animals - specifically seals. Just like with humans, rehab can be a lengthy process, but the results speak for themselves. Take a look at one happy seal taking its first steps in the wild after rehabilitation.

Simply heartwarming. It's impossible to imagine what the seal is thinking in those first few steps, but it's easy to see the excitement of hitting the ocean. Another success story from the Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre.
