    Experts on eastern Long Island are caring for a newborn seal that was found on a beach at Montauk State Park.
        

    Robert DiGiovanni, of the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation, says the seal has a slight respiratory infection.     
    It still had its umbilical cord attached when it was found on Feb. 12.
        
    The gray seal pup is about 3 feet long and 35 pounds. Adult males can weigh up to 800 pounds.
