Officers were called out to the Patterson Drive area of Charlottetown, at least one kilometre from the nearest large body of water.

According to their statement, a “concerned resident” had contacted police after they’d spotted a seal shuffling on dry land outside their property.

“This was a first for the responding officers,” admitted the police.

After consulting with the Department of Fisheries and Ocean Canada, officers responded to the call and picked up the lost seal.

They placed it in the back seat of the patrol vehicle and drove it to the water, where it was “released to its natural habitat.”

Officials involved shared an adorable photo and a short video of the rescue mission, which ended with the animal scooting off into the snow. Pretty cute, eh?
