A surf photographer captured an unusual scene at a Santa Cruz seaside final weekend: his canine fetching a ball with a seal.
Posted by @christoq on Twitter, the canine and seal are seen bouncing via the ocean, chasing after a ball thrown by the canine’s proprietor. As of Tuesday, the video had over 1.6 million views.
The video exhibits the seal approaching shore because the proprietor tosses the ball. The seal leaps into the air trying to beat the canine to the ball, however the canine wins and brings it again to the proprietor.
Many responded that the video made their day.
“Land pet meet sea pet,” replied @sounddude18. One other person identified that canines and seals are literally associated as each are a part of the suborder Caniformia throughout the Carnivora order.
Others responded that individuals must be cautious, as seals could be aggressive.
“Sorry to be a killjoy however seals are to not be trifled with,” stated @teachallamerica. “I’d by no means have let my canine close to one.”
