Cape Town 'Flubbagasted' at Seal's Freeway Stroll

Cape Town Councillor Angus McKenzie shared a video in which a seal can be seen on a busy road during peak traffic. He captioned it: "A seal making his way to Bonteheuwel swimming baths." It's a two-hour, 30-minute walk from the closest beach to Bonteheuwel.

The Cape of Good Hope Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says it got the animal safely into a crate before a quick health assessment. The seal was then taken to the nearest quiet beach where she swam out to sea. The SPCA speculates that the seal may have swum into a canal and was then washed inland.
