A few beachgoers got a glimpse of a rare sight along the Jersey shore this past weekend.

Workers with the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine were called to help rescue a baby white Harp Seal in Long Beach on Friday.

The little guy is only the second white harp seal to be treated at the center in 30 years.

Rescuers say he may be a month old. They think his mom gave birth to him off the New York or New Jersey coast and then abandoned him.
