Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Seal in Oudegracht in Utrecht
In the center of Utrecht a [common] seal has been found. The animal swam in the Oudegracht. It’s still a mystery how the seal ended up there.
It was removed from the water and is now in a dog cage in the police station, waiting until it will be brought to a shelter in Stellendam. There people will examine the seal’s health. …
A father and his daughter alerted the police who went to take a look. The seal had then passed to the bank to rest. There it was caught.
Update 28 August 2015: things go well for the seal.
