This morning, a fuzzy baby seal swam up to the rocks behind Gracie Mansion, the official residence of New York City's mayor (though Michael Bloomberg doesn't live there), and sunned itself on a rock. Needled for pictures, the mayor's office eventually tweeted a photograph of the uninvited occupier.

Give her liberty, or give her fish snacks! Hey-hey! Ho-ho! Cute baby seals won't go! (Until it gets cold!) [Gothamist, @NYCMayorsOffice]
