Hoover the talking seal October 2, 2006

Posted by Al in : bizarre,interesting,nature , trackback

Another unbelievable story that just must be true. Hoover was an orphan harbour seal from Maine who was hand reared by George and Alice Swallow. As he grew he learned to talk, not well more of a mimic rather than an actual conversation, however he did develop a strong Boston accent. More about Hoover can be found in this article, including a chance to hear him talking, and also he is referred to in this article as well.
