Video: Sammy the Seal is back!

He’s got street smarts and reckons he knows where the freshest fish is: Yes, Sammy the Seal is back!

You may have seen Sammy the Seal on RTE earlier this week as he was putting in an appearance in Wicklow town. Well-known locally, the seal is becoming increasingly courageous in his search for his favourite food, flopping his way from the River Vartry to the local fishmonger and some fine fish food. Now a video of Sammy has surfaced via reader Kevin O’Farrell as the bemused and concerened staff of the The Fishman try to stop Sammy crossing a busy road.

More recently, Sammy has been seen cavorting with a new lady seal and the young seals behaviour has become even braver! Maybe he’s thinking about providing for two?

Check out the earlier video of Sammy with his fishmonger friends in Wicklow from RTÉ News Now.
