Thor the Walrus Spotted in North of England

A walrus, nicknamed Thor, was spotted at the harborside in Scarborough, England, in the early hours of Saturday, December 31, according to a local marine life rescue service.

Video by Em Mayman, an assistant coordinator for British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDLMR), shows the walrus. The service said BDMLR area coordinators and Sealife Centre staff were monitoring Thor.

A New Year’s Eve fireworks display in the town was cancelled out of concern for the animal’s welfare, according to a local news report.
