The Halifax Regional Police are now bona fide Seal Whisperers.
In the middle of the night Thursday, two police officers were conducting a patrol in the area of Bishop’s Landing in Halifax when they were flagged down for some urgent assistance.
A woman had located a young harbor seal which had taken shelter underneath her parked vehicle. But by the time the officers returned, the seal was gone.
Concerned for its safety, the officers used some gentle persuasion and reassurance, wrapped the whiskered sushi lover in a blanket, and carefully assisted it back to its harbor home.
Before swimming away it gave the officers its seal of approval.
