Concerns grow around an aggressive seal in Port Fairy

Hooked on Tuna

As the Hooked on Tuna fishing competition heads into its second weekend at Portland and there's growing fears someone could be injured by a large aggressive seal.

The seal is becoming increasingly aggressive of late, and a Portland fisherman witnessed a large seal trying to attack people in a fish-cleaning area at the port area.

The incident comes weeks after a seal bit a woman 'to the bone' at Port Fairy leaving her hospitalised for days.

A warning has been released for people to take care in those areas and visitors are encouraged to not feed fish scraps to seals.

Once chasing the people away from the area the seal jumped on top of a table guarding a tuna caught earlier.
