In the summer, the Oslo fjord is already brimming with bathers, boaters and lovers of other water activities. Therefore, the presence of walruses exacerbated the situation for the authorities.

Walruses are social animals and rarely go to a new place alone, so Freya spent some time in a densely populated area. For Find some company.

Authorities have repeatedly advised people to stay away from the animal, but no one respected the animal’s safety. The warning that Freya was in danger of dying was useless if they couldn’t convince the curious to stay away. They kept coming from all directions without the slightest hesitation.
