AUDIO | Seal spotted off Montreal suburban shore

A salt-water seal has been sighted on the ice of fresh water Lac-St-Louis, west of Montreal and hundreds of kilometres away from its natural habitat.

Radio Noon talked with Véronique de la Chenelière at the Quebec Marine Mammal Emergency Response Network.

The seal was last seen Monday.

The emergency response organization asks anyone who sees the harp seal to call 1 877 722-baleine.
