WALLY the walrus soaks up the sunshine in a fishing boat after bidding au revoir to Britain.
But French cops said: “This walrus was not very cooperative.
“We are not going to reproach him for being careful on his road.”
It is thought Wally is nursing an injury after being hit by a boat on his journey south.
Wally’s travels of the British Isles have been well-documented this year.
He is thought to have drifted from the Arctic on an iceberg and was first spotted around islands north of Scotland, then off Ireland.
In April he popped up in Tenby, before travelling to Cornwall the following month.
Locals even started selling souvenirs, including £10 mugs, £23 cushions and £30 reclaimed wood pieces.
