Manchester Police/Fire: Seal washes ashore

Manchester Police/Fire

MANCHESTER — A person taking a stroll on Singing Beach Sunday found a dead seal that had washed up on the beach and, one day later, a stroller on White Beach found bones that police believe to be an animal spine.

Police said they received a call about the seal at 7:51 a.m. Sunday and responded to the beach. They later notified the New England Aquarium, but had not heard back as of Monday afternoon.

The other beach skeletal discovery was reported at 9:39 a.m. Monday.

Police responded to a call at 9:54 a.m. Saturday and intervened in a dispute between Woodholm Road neighbors, one of whom claimed his neighbor had been shoveling snow onto his property.
