Airport foreman Scott Babcock was surprised to see a huge bearded seal on the asphalt chilling in the milking sunshine. The incident happened on Monday at  Wiley Post-Will Rogers Memorial Airport in Utqiagvik, Alaska, when foreman Scott went to clear snow on the runway.

He told it was very surprising to him “It was very strange to see the seal. I’ve seen a lot of things on runways, but never a seal.”

According to the local TV, animal control was called in and they moved the seal with the help of sled.
