Matthew McConaughey baby seal: Actor helps save a seal in Malibu

See also

Matthew McConaughey of the hit show "True Detective" actually saved a baby seal. On Sunday, Perez Hilton shared about how this all went down. This all happened when he was surfing in Malibu. Some children were hanging out and were poking a baby seal with a stick. He went over to see what was going on.

One person saw it all go down and they said, "Matthew told the kids the seal wasn't hurt, it was resting and sunning itself - and that young pups do this all the time while the mother seal's swim close by until they are ready to re-enter the sea. After a 20-minute lecture on sea life, the kids were so anxious to get away that they didn't even bother to ask the star to pose for a photo."

It is really cool that Matthew McConaughey cared enough about the baby seal to help out with it. It is really unknown if the kids even realized who he was, but they listened and went on their way to do something else. It is great to know that he cares so much and also knew that nothing was wrong with the baby seal.
