Anglers despair as trapped seal eats lake’s fish stocks

A seal trapped in a fishing lake has “found himself in a branch of Waitrose” and has no incentive to escape, according to an expert.

The animal has evaded multiple attempts at capture since first being spotted at Rochford Reservoir, in Essex, almost a month ago, the BBC reported.

Simon Dennis, a marine medic and member of British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR), said the seal needed to be caught for its own welfare but was happily eating the fish in the lake. He said it was likely that it had swum up an inlet and become stuck in the reservoir.

“But now it probably has no incentive to leave as it’s found itself in a branch of Waitrose and it’s munching its way through the fish.”
