Some people found a baby seal crying for attention far away from the open sea, in the city of Sundsvall, in eastern Sweden. Apparently, instead of calling some emergency service, they just filmed her with their cellphones. A sad sign of the times, I guess. So eventually she was like "wtf, screw you humans," went back into the water, and left.


Looking at the video and the map of Sundsvall, the seal appears to be in the Selångersån, a stream that drains the lake Selåangersfjärden into the Bottenhavet—the Bothnian Sea—which connects the Bothnian Bay with the Baltic Sea. But I may be mistaken (if there are any Swedes reading this, perhaps they can help.)

In any case, I hope she finds her seal peeps soon. Godspeed, baby seal!
