Seal bites off woman’s nose

`A woman from Herold’s Bay who tried to help a female seal will have to get a new nose after the seal ripped the woman’s nose from her face.

Winnie Swanepoel, head of the SPCA in George, picked Elsie van Tonder’s nose up on the beach and rushed it to hospital, but it could not be surgically reattached to the 49-year-old’s face.’
