At Japan’s Okhotsk Tokkari Center, a lovely seal with no ears and an injury was rescued and did something that surprised staff members of the organization. After the seal was given a stuffed seal toy, the seal hugged the toy with affection and love. The staff members never expected the seal to respond this way to the toy. The seal treats the toy like its best friend. Not only does he cuddle it, but he even gives the toy rides on his back.
The Okhotsk Tokkari Center is a special shelter for seals without ears. The word “Tokkari” actually means “earless seal.” The center published pictures of the earless seal with his toy on Twitter and they’ve already gotten over 26,000 views.
