Dozens of Seals Were Trapped Ashore in a City in Canada

Canadian town suffers seal invasion

The DFO is working on a plan for the seals, including determining exactly where they're located and how many are in the area.

Fitzgerald said a few seals are usually spotted near town every year, but she's never seen such a large group in such distress.

An icy town in Newfoundland is dealing with some surprise visitors: a pod of around 40 harp seals.

To date, the seals haven't been able to find their way back.

Residents are unable to move them because it's illegal to touch marine mammals, but a pair of seals were struck by cars on Tuesday.

In yet another incident of freaky animal invasion, dozens of seals have descended upon the roads and the driveways of the town, creating an unfamiliar experience for the residents.

Police believe the seal deaths are not criminal and likely due to their having been struck by a vehicle.

Asian shares extend gains on hopes for trade breakthrough
Companies in both countries just want to see a deal get done. "I really believe they want to make a deal". The two sides agreed to keep close contact, according to the statement.

Garland said local RCMP have not received any complaints from residents about threats to public or animal safety, so the force has not intervened in removing the Roddickton seals. "The seals are in my driveway, ' or 'The seals, I see them suffering"'.

The town's roads are sanded now, to deal with ice and snow at this time of year, and the seals' light pelts blend in, she said - especially at dusk and dawn. "This is hard for the little seals, because nobody wants to see animals hurt - but it's also hard for the town".

While Stenson does not believe the seals will face any serious health issues from being stranded in the town, two seals have already been found dead.

However, Stenson said that harp seals are accustomed to going for stretches without feeding, and at this time of year should have built up their energy reserves in preparation for breeding.

It's not unusual for a single stranded seal to be moved, DFO's Garry Stenson says.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Newfoundland and Labrador said they rescued a seal and returned it back to the sea but have warned people not to approach the animals "without proper equipment".
