      And it’s from yesterday.

    • Thanks for that. We rely on what we’re told, and sometimes it’s obviously not correct.

  • Polly Gillespie might have reposted the photo but she didn’t take it. The photo was taken by Paul Howell Photography, I’ve posted the link below for verification. Cameron, please amend your title or post a ‘correction post’.

    • I was amending the caption as you were writing your message. It is a genuine error.

    Question. Why does every news item covering a marine mammal visiting us conclude with a finger wagging moustachioed DOC “woman” telling us to “stay away”? Fuck off, God just fuck off, we get it.

      Most DOC people are quite courteous… but what grips me is when they get all upset as if the animal either belongs to them or is on the state payroll. Nobody owns nature and if these DOC pricks ever get in my way they usually get the big “fuck off” – actually unsurprisingly other people react that way too.
