Earlier, CHP Officer Andrew Barclay says he got a face-full of hot breath and saliva while trying corral this extremely irritated mammal.
Barclay said the elephant seal had "a lot of weight behind her... So she was moving us pretty easily, a lot of force."
"What we've seen is she's obviously still trying to get out of the water. She's very adamant she's going to cross this stretch of roadway," Barclay added.
Which begs the question... and I'll bite...
Q: Why did the Elephant seal repeatedly try to cross a California highway?
A: To give the 30,000+ unemployed California Millennials with Marine Biology degrees something to do in 'their field'.
I'm just glad there are folks willing to stand on the side of the road holding rescue signs. I have no idea how smart these seals are, but apparently we know they can at least read English (putting them far ahead of the average California High School student).
Seriously, there is a regular dragnet of border patrol keeping this poor seal from crossing the highway. Maybe this little fella has an aunt in Sonoma. Is Sonoma NOT a sanctuary city?
Border security. It can be done. Now back in the water you go. Trust me. These well-intentioned liberals know what's best for you.
Born free, Fluffy! Swim away!!
