or “Monk seal on the loose”.
In the last few days a monk seal has been seen several times in the Canal Grande in Venice, mostly in the area around the fish markets, which kind of makes sense.
Until now nobody has managed to get a photo of it.
Today our kayak guide Loretta saw it too, also in a canal close to the fish markets at Rialto, but she too failed to get a photo in time.
It is very unlikely that the seal will survive for long in the canals of Venice, so hopefully it will be found, caught and taken to safer waters for its species.
