Seal hitches a ride on stand-up paddle board at Dorset beach

A seal has been pictured taking a ride with paddle boarders on the Dorset coast.

The seal, known as Sammy by locals in Weymouth, has become a regular sight for beachgoers.

Sammy is even known to approach people on the beach and he is checked up on a regular basis by volunteers.

Last month there were reports of people throwing stones at Sammy, according to the Dorset Echo. 

The paper reported that police officers had to meet with the RSPCA to ensure his safety. But this hasn’t stopped Sammy being friendly around people.

The animals are usually known for being elusive and shy but Sammy looks more than comfortable as he balances on the board.
