A lone seal was seen frolicking on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River in Verdun Monday.

“I go out every day to bird watch near my home,” Jean-Marc Lacoste told Global News.

He found the marine mammal by the water, near Stephens Street, just in front of the Douglas Mental Health University Institute.

Lacoste is a former Quebec MNA, who served with the Parti Québécois (PQ) in the riding of Sainte-Anne from 1976 to 1981 before entering municipal politics as a city councillor in Montreal’s Verdun borough from 1981 to 1985.

The 67-year-old Verdun native also captured footage of an eagle as it flew by.

Anyone who comes across any wildlife is advised not to approach the animal.
