DULUTH, MN (CNN) - It's may be the last thing you'd expect to see in your headlights.  CNN iReporter Ellie Burcar was dodging flooded, impassable roads in Duluth, Minnesota when she pulled up on this.

Because of the flooding rains this week, some animals got out of their exhibits.   Burcar called 911, then talked to the seal, while snapping a few pictures, until help arrived.

She said, while she watched, the seal made it across the road to a big puddle, where it splashed around in the water like a kid on a playground.
