Cutest story in the news right now in New Zealand. A seal is on the loose in Auckland. People have been trying to get it back to the water, but it refuses. Yesterday, they managed to get it very close, but it wouldn’t go into the water, so they left it there hoping it would change its mind later and jump in. But then this morning, they realised that it has worked its way back into the city!
I hope that it will find its way back to the sea soon, because it can’t be healthy for it to be out of the water this long? I don’t really know much about seals though, haha. The article does say that ‘there has been speculation that the bitter chill over Auckland last night forced the seal to seek shelter.’ It took shelter in a car wash! Poor thing.
They’ve started a Twitter account for the seal. Pretty funny. Let’s hope he finds his way back to his family soon!
