Seal crosses road every day to visit seafood restaurant

Why catch fish when you're so cute you get given them?

Introducing Sammy the Seal, a Local Celebrity in an Irish City

Sammy the seal is something of a local celebrity in Wicklow City, Dublin.

He emerges out of the water at Howth harbour everyday and flops over the road to beg for fish from The Lighthouse Seafood Restaurant.

He's so incredibly cute, even leaning over to 'ask' for food, that sometimes the staff give in and get his fish.

But sometimes they try and shoo him away with a chair. But when that fails, the owner uses fish to entice him back to the water.

So he gets his fish either way. He's a clever boy, that Sammy.

Meanwhile, back in February, a hungry sea lion pup sat itself down at The Marine Room, an upscale seafood restaurant in San Diego, California.

The executive chef, Bernard Guillas managed to snap a few pictures of the special guest.

Guillas then jokingly wrote on Facebook, "He was a little bit early for his high tide breakfast reservation as it is this weekend on Sunday and Monday."
