A lost seal was found in the middle of a footpath in Dunedin this morning.
The seal was noticed at about midday and was resting in the shade beside Portsmouth Drive, near Otago Harbour.
The Department of Conservation were notified and sent someone to the location to take care of it, where police had also arrived to help.
A DOC worker used a large piece of wood to shepherd the seal away from the road and back towards the harbour.
