The seal that recently swam in the canals of Groningen travelled further inland to the province of Drenthe. People saw the animal in the small stream de Hunze, close to Annen, about 40 kilometers from the sea.
A family in Purmerend has been sitting for fifteen months on top of the remains of their lost cat. The animal died when it got stuck in the springs at the bottom of the living room couch.
The cat Blacky was lost at the end of December 2011. Not finding the cat anywhere inside and outside the house, the owners assumed that the pet fell through the ice and drowned.
