The match, which was attended by about 13 years, was held in the coastal city of Dunedin. Before the duel started, it seemed that there wasn’t much to do. The sea lion was obedient on the side of the field. However, the animal got to work when the match started. The sea lion stormed into the center of the field and forced the game to stop.
Then the two teams decided to continue playing in a different stadium. This was again the exclusion of the sea lion. He followed them to the other square. Then the spectators tried to chase the animal away and keep it at a distance with a two-meter branch. The animal left after 45 minutes. In the meantime, the game can continue.
“We’ve never experienced anything like this,” said Bradley Scott, who supported his daughter during the match last weekend. “Fortunately, everyone handled the problem wisely. Therefore, it is not the sea lion’s fault that our fields are so close to the coast.”
This is not the first time that a sea lion has been found among people in New Zealand. Just last week, a sea lion closed a local road. The authorities advise people to always keep a distance of at least 20 meters from animals. If they feel threatened, they can become aggressive.
