Video Shows Elephant Seal Flopping Along Streets Of Chilean Town


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Some people would rather wander for hours than admit they're lost, and maybe that was the case with an elephant seal, which took a wrong turn into a Chilean town this week. Video shows the enormous creature flopping along neighborhood streets - normally lives at the edge of the water or in it. The seal was safely carried back to the water on a tarp by the Chilean police and navy, which means it became a navy SEAL. I'm here all week. It's MORNING EDITION.
