It is impossible to predict the kind of animal that may be right outside your door. A very unexpected critter that strayed far from home and decided to take a snooze on their porch recently gave one family quite the surprise.
The Department of Conservation in New Zealand posted on Facebook that a Wellington family found a seal pup outside their house last week, curled up for a nice snooze on their porch:
However, the Department of Conservation emphasizes that this is typical and that the seals should continue their lives with little assistance. In a Facebook post, they stated, “They might look skinny or sick, with weepy eyes and a cough, but this is normal – seals are very resilient animals.” “Rest, not rescue, is what seals need.”
On the other hand, they advised calling the department in the event that a seal was hurt or in danger on your property. An cop came and moved this drowsy porch seal to a more secure area away from dogs and vehicles.
