A large elephant seal broke Chile’s overnight curfew and was found wandering around a coastal town in the South American country. According to the guardian , residents of Puerto Cisnes were surprised to see the marine mammal travelling through the streets of their town on Monday night.
As per reports by NDTV the elephant seal, weighing a whopping two-tonne, was filmed by several people hefting itself through the roads for a few blocks before help arrived to rescue it. Eyewitnesses said that it was not aggressive and appeared confused. It is believed that the seal became disoriented after coming ashore.
Police, navy officers and neighbours used black tarpaulins to drive the seal back to water. One video shared on Twitter shows several people working together to guide the seal back to sea.
