This is Sammy the Seal. He lives in the harbor of Howth, Ireland. Every day, he climbs out of the water to beg for fish at The Lighthouse Seafood Restaurant.
In this video, Sammy rises from the water, patiently waits for a car to drive past, then crawls toward the restaurant. A worker there comes out with a chair to dissuade him. But Sammy is determined. It pays off, as the man eventually gives him fish to eat.
