Freya, the Sunbathing, Boat-Sinking Walrus, is at it Again

Freya, the 1,300-pound walrus who sank boats all over Northern Europe in 2021, has returned and continues to sink watercraft. 

Scientists believe she is climbing on boats because ice floes are hard to find. Experts are trying to find a way to relocate her, but they're not sure how to do it. Here's some video footage from Norway where she is currently lounging.
