July 31 (UPI) -- Visitors to a Dublin harbor captured video of a friendly seal that has become famous to locals for waving to anyone who will throw it snacks.

Simon McGarr tweeted a video showing the seal in Howth Harbor showing off its friendliness after being tossed some fish scraps.


The video shows the seal receiving the scraps thrown by a man from shore and then waving in gratitude.

The man throwing the scraps told McGarr that the seal had previously suffered a head injury from a boat collision, but it made a full recovery.
