A rude animal has been spotted living in Arctic waters off the coast of Wales days after an individual was spotted off the coast of Ireland as well. The transplanted specimen was seen on a cliff on the south shore of Cold Heaven on the southeastern tip of St Brides Bay before returning to the sea. Animal advocates say it may be the same one seen on the coast of County Kerry in Ireland.
It was a sample the size of a cow. strong. I saw walruses on TV and in the news, but they were a giant specimen. It is common for a tale to fall asleep on an iceberg that drifted on and then woke up in Ireland. Then he made his way home to Wales
– Tell Cleopatra Brown, A member of the Welsh Marine Life Saving Service, who observed the animal from about 40 meters and who is believed to be a young man, as the walrus tusk was about 7.5 cm long.
RSPCA Officer, Eli West Also notice the animal from a distance.
He rested, and although he appeared slightly malnourished, fortunately he did not show signs of illness or injury. It is a very rare sight, these large and beautiful animals usually never swim this south. We think he’s a young man who has cut yet in search of food
Spotted an exhausted polar walrus on Valentia Island #Kerry Today away from home. A rare sight but not strange by all accounts – the first official sighting of walruses here on the Shannon River in 1897 (shot thanks to Seánie Murphy / Valentia) Embed a Tweet pic.twitter.com/yrdQR1Ibam
