Huge seal causes trouble in suburban Tasmania

  • 26/12/2016

A giant wild seal in Tasmania is getting into the "seal-y" season, stopping to take a nap on the bonnet of a car in Newstead on Monday.

Nicknamed "Mr Lou-Seal" by Tasmania Police, the large marine animal had to be removed by officers from Parks and Wildlife.

Police say the seal is currently resting in Penquite Rd and awaiting relocation.

They have thanked members of the public for staying at a safe distance.
