In Canada, a village calls for help in the face of a seal invasion
The village of Roddickton-Bide Arm called for help on Wednesday. The Canadian Coast Guard faced the invasion of forty seals that could not return to the Atlantic, the streets and streets along the gardens of this small community in the north of Newfoundland.
The city council met on Tuesday evening to discuss this multi-day situation and decided to officially ask the Coast Guard to evacuate marine mammals.
Mammals Disoriented Sailors
"They told us to let nature take its course, but it's been almost a week since the seals found their home here," said Mayor Sheila Fitzgerald in the local newspaper The Northern Pen , "If (the seals) found their way, they would have made it!"
The Roddickton-Bide Arm is located on the northern tip of Newfoundland and is on the seal route. In winter they leave the Arctic and Greenland to stay on the shores of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the south to be born in the spring.
But according to biologists interviewed by the Canadian media, Roddickton-Bide Arm's seals are a bit disoriented and find it hard to find the Atlantic Ocean and settle for pack ice around the village.
As recently recalled by the Swiss Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, seals are wild animals "that can not be touched or touched" because "they can be unpredictable and aggressive" or "transmitted". Infections in Humans "
The villagers have no choice but to drop the animals into their driveways or into the street, as several pictures and videos published on social networks show.
But the seals have such a clear skin like the snow-covered ground, "they are confused with the road" and "it's difficult to see them," said the mayor, noting that on Tuesday night two seals were hit by a car.
"They are more and more more lethargic, they do not move fast, it really hurts to see these animals suffer, "she said, noting that two of them already died.
