A man accidentally listed 600 seals for sale, prompting thousands of amused comments online.
The ad was referring to the seals on Horsey beach, north of Great Yarmouth, and included 180 pups.
On Wednesday (November 20) a man identified as 'JB' posted a tweet saying: "Shout out to my Dad who has accidentally listed 600 seals and 180 of their pups for sale on Facebook."
The tweet shows a screenshot of the Facebook ad, where a man named Peter had put the seals and pups on Horsey beach up for sale.
The inadvertent advertisement also included pictures of the beach and the seals there.
