When you own a restaurant and a bar, and you have rowdy customers, it can be troubling to get them out so that you can keep the peace. But when you have an uninvited guess that weighs several hundred tonnes, there isn’t a lot that you can do. In Ireland, every single day, a seal leaves the comfort of its beach, crosses the street, and heads right in to the local seafood restaurant.
Dubbed Sammy by the local community, people have come to expect seeing him crossing the two-lane street in his usual slow way. One employee tries to stir the seal away with a chair, but the creature isn’t having any of it. It sits there, not moving, waiting for this man with the strange object to get out of its way.
