Good thing it was Sweden. If it had been Canada they would've clubbed him over the head.

Yawn. Nothing wrong with seal hunting. Seals arent endangered.

Reminds me when fish evolved from water to land, maybe it had enough of living in the sea.

A topic I just read from here was with reagards to a live bomb found in a squid.

One commentor jokingly connected that to the rouge armed dolphins.

Now whe have a land invasion by a seal. Perhaps this is the marine variety of Seal Team 6.

Folks, I think Nature is planning WAR against us.

Those navy seals get everywhere... no surprise they leave some pups along the way.

Lucky he was found in a friendly country else he would be paraded in front of the media as a western spy.

All I've got is the metal image of the old circus act with a seal playing carhorns in tune to get a reward of a fish...

I thought animals have an instinct in returning to their own habitat especially water specimen, seal in this case? seal has been well known for a distant traveler, as they do travel for miles to find food and they tend to have some places to go more than one place, but they still go to the same places randomly, from time to time (seasonally). It's weird to me that, little pup couldn't smell water. I don't think it's lost by it self but there could be some other reason to that. owww poor thing :-(

You have a point about their sense of direction and smell, perhaps poor mum was taken by a land predator and her remains / scent carried with the animal back to it's own natural habitat in the forest. Poor baby may have been determined to find his mom. :cry:
