Like a chocoholic with keys to a Godiva shop, a young harbor seal found herself in sea mammal heaven yesterday — the Sandwich Hatchery.(Ironic name)

And before she was captured and released on a salt water beach, the little seal managed to munch on untold numbers of four-pound trout.No one is quite sure exactly how the seal ended up at the state fish hatchery.

She had to travel about two miles from the area of the Sandwich Boardwalk on Cape Cod Bay, follow a creek that passes under a mini-golf course and Route 6A and runs through a wooded area skirting the fish hatchery, before somehow making her way to the hatchery lagoons. With several fish-filled lagoons to choose from, the little seal ended up in the one with the largest trout, most weighing four pounds or so. Click link for video
