A woman in her 70s remains in hospital after she was bitten by a seal near a boat ramp at Port Fairy, a popular seaside town in south-west Victoria, over the weekend. Paramedics reported the bite went “through to the bone” at the wharf late on Saturday afternoon. Seal ‘lunged out of the water’ Helene Whelan and her partner witnessed the attack and helped the woman after the seal lunged at her. She said they had stopped after noticing a crowd around the boardwalk.
