Curious seal pup wanders into family’s living room

Curious seal pup wanders into family’s living room

A woman was stunned to find a baby seal in her New Zealand home after she returned from collecting firewood.

Clare Christian spotted the pup on the porch of her Ruamti home on North Island on Saturday morning. After the pup fed on some fish, it wandered inside the living house and lounged by the fire.

“He was just so chilled, he was so relaxed,” said Clare.

But after 10 minutes inside the house, the pup grew homesick and returned back to the ocean.

New Zealand fur seals often come ashore in winter, leaving their pups alone while they search for food.
