“I just couldn’t believe it when I saw the little seal was making movements as if he wanted to nurse,” wrote Lee, adding, “I knew he was hungry, weak and definitely scared. I ran from the beach to get a blanket and a few pieces of raw fish.” The celebrity chef continued, “When I brought the raw fish to the baby seal it was as if I was giving a sandwich to an infant. He was still in the nursing phase of his life and his mother was nowhere to be found.”
