PHOTOS: Elephant seal captured in Sonoma County
A biologist at Point Reyes checked on her Wednesday and says the seal, named Tolay, made her way to a colony at Drakes Beach.
A rescue team moved her to the Pt. Reyes Seashore on Thursday.
The 900-pound elephant seal was safely removed from the Sonoma mud flats near Highway 37 and Highway 121 on Tuesday after two days of trying to cross the road to get to dry land.
