"We got up and there was this great big seal on the roof of the vehicle which is definitely not what you'd expect on Boxing Day", William Gregory, who was inside the home, told the ABC News.

The police also said that they are not sure how the male seal found its way to Penquite Road in the Launceston suburb of Newstead, which is 50km from the ocean. Police cordoned off the area and people inside the house were reportedly unable to leave for several hours.

Clearly, these adorable marine animals care nothing about boundaries, as proven by this photo that the Tasmania Police department shared on Facebook of the sea creature they nicknamed "Mr. Lou-Seal" in peak IDGAF mode.

At one point in its land caper, the animal clambered on top of a auto parked in a driveway, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

"We got up and there was this great big seal on the roof of the auto which is definitely not what you'd expect on Boxing Day", he later told another broadcaster ABC.

"You kind of wake up and you wonder, is this really happening, am I really seeing this or am I still dreaming?" said William, as reported by ABC News. After confused residents noticed a few cars had dents in them wildlife officers were called to step in.

She added that seals have been found in unusual locations in the past, such as paddocks and auto parks, and even a cemetery toilet previous year.
