Sneaky elephant seal gets caught stealing researcher’s boat

Who the heck does this seal think he is?

This video from 2008 has recently resurfaced, which provides hard evidence of this elephant steal knowingly absconding with a boat which belonged to British Antarctic Survey.

When he’s caught, though, the seal plays totally innocent, complete with a wide-eyed stare.

Yeah, nice try, Seal. You were caught redhanded … er, flippered.
