Why did the elephant seal cross the road? The reason isn't clear, but the result was no laughing matter after she caused some major traffic delays.
Wildlife experts in Northern California had to deal with a 200kg elephant seal on Monday (local time), as she caused a traffic jam while repeatedly trying to cross a divider wall on Highway 37 in Sonoma.
"Every time we got her in the water, she circled back and tried to climb out again," a California Highway Patrol spokesman told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Locals are saying she is still hanging around the bay today.
Experts say the seal does not appear to be injured and is likely lost and confused.
