From the BBC website:
"The seal pup had made its way into the lorry park via a steep, man-made banking," Scottish SPCA officer Alistair Hill said. "It would have taken a lot of effort for him to get up there and he had no intention of returning to the choppy waters. Normally we'd ask people to leave seals alone until we arrive but there was a risk he could have been injured in the busy lorry park so a member of staff put him in their car until I got there."
However, the seal managed to escape from the boot by pushing down one of the rear seats and wriggling up onto the dashboard.
"He is clearly a very smart seal as he ended up watching the storm out the windscreen of the car from his warm, dry spot on the dash," said Mr Hill.
The photograph is brilliant. XD Even with their description, I can't imagine how he got all the way up from the footwell and onto the dash.
