Beware of Morse code! Freya hits the headlines in Norway



For the past week, she has been lounging in the Oslo fjord, damaging a few boats under her 600 kilos in the process: Freya, a young female walrus, is Norway’s summer sensation. Already seen in the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden, Freya chose to spend part of the summer in Norway, where she first gained notoriety by hoisting herself onto pleasure boats in Kragerø, an idyllic southern coastal village, before going to do the same in the waters of the capital since July 17. The presence of the mammal normally living in the even more northern latitudes of the Arctic has aroused the curiosity of the local population and made the headlines of the press. In this country in love with “slow TV”, the newspaper Verdens Gang even decided for a moment to broadcast its every move live on its website.
