Ok, he didn’t really, but I’m pretty sure he’ll be blamed for this.
An Arctic seal found in a Fort Lauderdale canal — far from its habitat near the North Pole — died Tuesday, a day after it was captured.
The bearded seal was thin and dehydrated, though it was not immediately known what killed the animal. Dr. Christopher Dold, a staff veterinarian at SeaWorld, said the park would examine it Tuesday to try to learn more.
However, Dold said it may never be known why the animal came so far south.
”It may continue to live on in a land of speculation as to why this happened,” Dold said. ”It’s such an isolated event.”
