Video: Massive elephant seal squiggles through neighborhood
Videos from Wednesday night show an elephant seal taking an evening waddle through the streets of Puerto Cisnes. Neighbors, police and naval officers used black tarps to help drive the massive animal toward the water. “I want to thank the community for its huge support," said Muñoz, according to the Spanish news agency Efe. Officials said they will continue to patrol the streets so the animal doesn’t come back and to avoid any accidents. They are the largest members of the seal family and can weigh up to four tons.
