Ann Page, 72, walked outside and was taken aback by the unexpected guest she encountered. By at least 20 miles from the sea, a real live seal was lounging on the grass in her garden.
Around 7:30 a.m., the woman walked out into the garden to water the plants. She does it every day, but things didn’t go as planned this time. A big seal was quickly observed on the pensioner’s garden.
“All we did was stare into one other’s eyes.” I returned to the home, leaving my watering can behind. Ann Page remarked, “But then I went out again because I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing.”
The woman is from Lincolnshire, and her home is at least 20 miles from the coast. She believes the seal crossed the River Witham and then the River Skirth, which is four miles from Ann Page’s house.
Rob, her son, stepped in to help. He contacted the cops, and police officer Martin Green and a Royal Society for the Protection of Animals staffer arrived at the property shortly after. They returned the seal to the sea after removing it from Ann Page’s yard.
“I’d guess she weighed between 60 and 70 kg.” “It wasn’t easy loading her into the vehicle,” Martin Green remarked. He also mentioned that he had three encounters with seals throughout his 23 years as a police officer. Later, it was discovered that a seal named Dandy had come in Ann Page’s yard to sunbathe. This isn’t the first time she’s been involved in a strange situation.
While training in Boston, UK in 2020, she got on a woman’s surfboard.
