New Zealand scientists find USB seal footage in seal poo

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

New Zealand scientists researching leopard seal poo made an unusual discovery when they found a working USB stick in a poo sample they were analysing.

The poo, which is scientifically known as scat, was gathered by a local vet to monitor the health of a thin leopard seal seen on Oreti Beach, NIWA (National Institute Of Water And Atmospheric Research) said.

The scat was then left in a freezer for over a year before being defrosted by NIWA scientists for research purposes, revealing a USB concealed deep inside.

The USB contained video footage of an unidentified person kayaking in Porpoise Bay and a sea lion and her baby playing in the water, as well as a photograph of a sea lion on a Southland beach.

NIWA said that they are now looking to find the owner of the USB stick so that they can return the footage to them.
