The huge animal managed to lumber down ten blocks of a residential area of Puerto Cisnes, in the country’s southern Patagonian region, before returning to its natural habitat with a little bit of help from the locals.

“It was a great effort. The seal is safe now and out of danger from humans and dogs that could do it damage.”
