The seal in question must be terribly hungry.
Because in this video, the animal leaves its habitat to try and steal a fish — which is still on a reel!
As a woman tries to land a fish — to off-camera encouragement — beachgoers are stunned that the seal follows the fish out of the water.
The woman and her crew back away from the water, and after a time, the seal loses hope about its lunch.
Slowly, it retreats back into the water. There are a lot more fish in the sea, after all.
