Wally the Wandering Walrus Spotted in Iceland

By Ilyas Al Kabour, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint

A Walrus previously spotted in Ireland, France, Spain and the UK has made an appearance in Iceland Marine experts have said. 

The Walrus that weighs 800kg, known as Wally, had not been seen for more than three weeks, with people saying they were “starting to lose hope” of ever seeing him again. However, a local sea rescuer in Iceland said he had been seen in Iceland on Sunday after 22 days of no sightings. He was identified from scars on both his front flippers, the group said. The wandering Walrus was thought to have travelled 4,000km before reaching Ireland, with the new sighting in Iceland meaning he had swum more than 900km (560 miles) from his last known location in Cork.
