Feisty, the seal that’s now-famous photograph was taken on Grand Avenue outside Lake Superior Zoo during the June 2012 flooding in Duluth, was No. 3 on BuzzFeed.com’s “The 40 Cutest Things That Happened This Year” list for 2012.

The image, captured by Ellie Burcar, appears alongside some of the most “Aww!”-inducing photos and videos of animals you’ll see today with the headline “The most dramatic picture ever taken of a fugitive seal happened after a zoo escape.”

Feisty currently resides at the Como Park Zoo in St. Paul.
