A fur seal found on Tonga beach

A fur seal was found in Tonga by a group of fishermen (Facebook)

A fur seal is being nursed back to health this week after being rescued from ‘One Island in Tonga.

Photos uploaded to Facebook showed a man carrying the sea mammal with comments saying it  has been handed over to Tongan Fisheries authority.

For the seal to be found in the kingdom is an unusual occurrence since the mammals tend to stay off shore and in cold water areas.

The rare occassion happened after two sea lions were spotted at the Fu’amotu beach in 1990s.

Tonga’s Ministry of Fisheries did n0t immediately response to our request for comments.
