Seal rescued off Sydney bites back

Water police have rescued a seal caught in a net off Sydney's northern beaches - but the ungrateful beast has responded by taking a bite out of their boat.

Surfers spotted the 2.5 metre seal trapped in a shark net 200 metres off North Narrabeen about 9am (AEST) on Monday, police said.

Water police and officers from National Parks and Wildlife freed the animal using long poles.

The seal was apparently unhurt and swam away, but not before sinking its teeth into the rescuers' inflatable boat.

The vessel, which has eight teeth punctures, is currently being repaired and is expected to be back on the water on Monday afternoon.
