Roddickton-
Bide Arm is an quaint seaside town in the north of the Newfoundland peninsula.
It\'s also a threatened community, and in the reports of local newspapers, it\'s reminiscent of the chilling 1963 classic bird by Alfred Hitchcock.
But in the far east of North America, the attack was not an aerial attack.
It arrived from the sea.
Dozens of harp seals have exceeded about 1,000, and if marine mammals continue to flood, it may need to be modified as the name of the \"world Moose Capital.
Rodicton is full of spotted gray animals. Bide Arm.
Some people say they arrived around Christmas.
Others claim to have seen them a few weeks ago.
But they can\'t miss it this week.
They crawl along the road.
They were packed with parking lots and gas stations.
They appear in the driveway and back yard.
This is not the scene in Hitchcock\'s movie.
But it\'s not a feeling.
Good story.
Authorities confirmed to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that two seals were hit and killed by a car on Tuesday.
The smooth gray coats worn by these animals are often integrated with the road.
Since it is illegal for the state to provide access to marine mammals, residents have been unable to provide assistance, although it has proved difficult to implement.
So when seals look for food and water, locals sometimes scream.
\"It\'s disturbing the residents,\" the city\'s mayor, Sheila fitzard, told CTV News . \".
\"We got calls from a lot of people who said, \'You have to do something.
The seals are in my driveway and I see the seals suffering.
The mayor told the CBC that she thought the animals were confused.
\"They look very poor.
\"I mean, they haven\'t eaten yet,\" she said . \".
Seals may be confused about the new environment, but the reason they landed is simple.
Scientists from Canada\'s Fisheries and Oceans department told Canadian media that harp seals migrate south from the Arctic every winter.
In the early days of the season, when the weather is still relatively warm, there is often a little ice near the coast, so animals embrace the coastline.
But if water freezes behind them, it will be difficult for them to return to the open ocean.
Some people lost their way and found the way to land.
The problem may become more complicated by the thinning of ocean ice, which scientists believe is one of the shocking consequences of climate change.
Mating and breeding of harp seals depends on ice seals, and disruption may also affect their migration schedule;
With less ice on the coast, these animals may be drawn closer to land.
In a new analysis published in the journal Science on Thursday, scientists warned that the ocean was warming faster than previously thought and showed the highest temperatures in 2018.
Now, the mayor tells NPR that the animals are getting lazy, \"a little more tired and sleepy.
\"There is no food supply in winter to sustain them, but animals that usually breed and rest only on land cannot continue to live.
Seals store enough fat in their whale fat to not eat for several days in a row.
The Ministry of Fisheries and Oceans said on Thursday that with the assistance of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Newfoundland and Labrador, it was working to address the situation.
Federal agencies say their officials have removed some seals and will continue to do so.
A response team has been dispatched to rodicton. Bide Arm.
\"We will continue to work with the community to ensure everyone\'s safety and identify what steps need to be taken next,\" DFO promised . \" DFO reminds Canadians not to approach the seals.
\"Human interaction can disrupt the life of an animal and can lead to injury or death of the animal.
\"But some residents want to know what can be done and they find that the problem has been going on for weeks --
The other seals are still going ashore. Roddickton-
