TASMANIA — In Colorado, we occasionally see some elk or a mountain lion or a bear in a suburban area. They have different challenges in Tasmania.
Tasmania Police and parks officials were called to “secure and relocate a large seal” that made its way into suburban Newstead, and onto a car.
“The seal is presently in Penquite Road and should not be approached,” police warned on Facebook on Sunday. “Members of the public are asked to remain at a safe distance to avoid unnecessarily agitating the animal and risk harm to themselves or the animal.”
Police posted this photo on Facebook.
Police gave him the nick name “Mr. Lou-Seal.”
He was “collected” by police and Parks and Wildlife officers.
“After a medical check-up he will be released,” police said on Facebook.
