A RAMPAGING seal has been tucking into coarse fish well up the River Severn in Gloucestershire.

As reported in the new bumper issue of Angler’s Mail (December 21/28 issue), one carp had a miraculous escape.

But a pike was not so lucky – its demise at the teeth of the cute and friendly seal being caught on camera by a Mail reader.

The video of the attack is available to view HERE – but please be warned that the video does contain some swear words.

The mammal – thought to be a common seal that grows to over 6 ft long and weighing 290 lb – has been entertaining many anglers even if it has meant poor sport.

Read the full story in Angler’s Mail magazine – and see a stunning image of another seal attack.
