A walrus first spotted off the coast of County Kerry in Ireland in mid-March was seen resting on a slipway on March 31 on the coast of Tenby, Wales.
A joint statement by the RSPCA and multiple marine conservation organizations, published in several reports, has urged sightseers to keep their distance should they come across the walrus.
“We’re asking people to remember he is a wild animal and avoid the temptation to get near to him and disturb him,” the statement reads.
