On March 5, at 12:30 a.m. on March 5, 2015 two Halifax Regional Police officers where conducting a patrol in the area of Bishop’s Landing in Halifax. The officers were flagged down to assist a woman who had located a young harbor seal which had taken shelter underneath her parked vehicle. Smelling something fishy the officers took matters in hand and located the silly seal as it was taking a leisurely stroll down the middle of Lower Water Street. 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.
