On Thursday evening Aug. 10, a guest in the Friday Harbor Marina was bitten on the arm by Popeye the seal. The guest was resting his arm on the edge of his boat and not feeding or interacting with the harbor seal. We do not know what led to the bite but prior to this event, the Port had been cooperating with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, local businesses, and the Marine Mammal Stranding Network to discourage the feeding of wildlife at the marina. It is our hope and intention that we make future incidents like this less likely by proactively engaging with our guests about the hazards posed by feeding wildlife at the marina.
