Sammy, the notorious Irish seal, chased back into the water by Donald Trump campaign poster

sammy-nSAMMY the Seal, is well known to those who live in Wicklow town. 

His regular visits to The Fishman seafood shop, and to The Lighthouse restaurant have been caught on camera many times.

Yet sometimes, despite locals’ polite attempts to encourage him back into the water where he belongs, he can be stubborn.

However, as one local man discovered, the mere sight of US presidential hopeful and right wing republican Donald Trump’s face is enough to get Sammy moving, as the video below shows.

Check it out below

That’s one way of putting Sammy the seal back to safety on the south quay Wicklow town opposite the lighthouse seafood restaurant

    I wonder how the seal would react to a Hillary poster? Would he think that it was a shark or some type of sea creature? Or just a hypocritical phony?
