Huge seal perches on car, partially crushes it

TASMANIA, Australia -- Police in Tasmania shared a photo of a large fur seal on top of a car. The seal somehow wandered into a neighborhood and made himself at home.

Police say the seal dented the car's hood and some windows even shattered under the animal's girth.

Police have named it "Lou-Seal" and were able to capture it safely. Lou-seal was tranquilized to be released back into the wild.
