'Owha' the leopard seal moves to Hobsonville Pt

From Checkpoint, 5:54 pm on 14 August 2019

Owha the marauding leopard seal is something of a local legend in Auckland's Upper Waitematā Harbour.

The seal has made a wharf and a marina there her home for the last five years.

But much to boaties' dismay, this seal's favourite pastime is popping inflatable dinghies, and submerging small boats.

A public meeting is being held to educate people about how to deal with the seal. Amy Williams reports.
