"A week ago, we woke up. we have two little brooks in town - they were full of seals".
Now that the seals are there, the town and the DFO have to decide what to do about them, and whether or not they should be - or can be - moved.
A seal is shown on a road in Roddickton, Nfld, .in a handout photo.
Officers liaised with federal Fisheries officials to safely return the animal to "more isolated area on the peninsula, away from any community area".
The town's mayor said approximately 40 stranded seals recently have been living among the town's 999 people.
Fitzgerald says that two seals have died this week, in what she believes is a traffic accident.
Two of the animals in Roddickton-Bide Arm, Newfoundland, died after being struck by a auto.

In Roddickton's case, Stenson said it appears the seals have wandered too far from the ocean and have become disoriented. "This is hard for the little seals, because nobody wants to see animals hurt - but it's also hard for the town".
She says that the seals are common enough in the town that residents likely to encounter one when they leave for a walk or a drive.
"What's going to happen when these seals start to perish all around?" Fitzgerald said a plane from St. John's will fly over the area to assess the situation beyond the town once weather permits.
A spokesperson for the RCMP said officers responded to a complaint Wednesday morning, and on arriving at the scene, they found employees from Department of Fisheries and Oceans were there as well. "And the difficulty with some areas, of course, is if they're not stuck on land, then it's much more hard".
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Newfoundland and Labrador said they rescued a seal and returned it back to the sea but have warned people not to approach the animals "without proper equipment". So enjoy the unusual site of a group of them this nearby, Stenson said, but do it from a distance.
"It's kind of neat that Newfoundland is one of the few places where we're actually able to see these animals".
