A baby seal has been discovered in a forest four miles away from the coast by a perplexed walker.

A member of the public was strolling through Uppsala in Sweden when they made the shock discovery. Officials are baffled as to how the animal got there.

'A somewhat confused person called and said he was out walking in the woods where he had found a seal pup. I thought he was joking at first,' said local policeman Henrik Pederson, according to The Metro.

The pup was released into a nearby river. Robert Sandefors, who made the discovery, said: "He must have gotten separated from his mother and gone in the wrong direction."
