Seal slaps kayaker in the face with octopus

A kayaker has told BBC 5 Live how he was slapped in the face with a large octopus thrown by a seal.

Kayakers off Kaikoura in New Zealand were trying to capture the sunbathing seals but nothing was standing in the way of this animal's lunch.

Speaking to Anna Foster, Kyle Mulinder described the moment he realised he had been ‘attacked’.
