A seal tangled in bright blue-green fishing net welcomes the help from two Maine fishermen. 

The men can be heard cooing, “There you go, little fella” and “It’s okay, little buddy,” as the seal wiggles and barks.

The touching video ends with the seal turning to look back at its rescuers as the one man says, “You’re welcome.”
