is this a harp seal? and can anyone guess about how old it is... It is very weak, I'm guessing that it is dying. I was within 5 feet of it yesterday and all it can do is lift it's head. This is the second one I've seen here in about 6 weeks, the last one died.

Where did you see it? Why do you think it's dying?? No parents around??

I found it in Harbour Grace on the beach. Very weak, remained within a few feet of the same spot for several days... I could get within 5 feet of it and it barely moved. No, no other seals around...

Yes, this is a Harp Seal, it appears to be an adult or young adult seal.
