Leopard seals are normally found in Antarctica and rarely spotted in Australia, but sightings of the dangerous predator have become more common.

A rescue organisation was called to North Bondi about 2pm on Tuesday to deal with the large mammal after being alerted to its presence near the rocks.

Police said volunteers rushed to the beach, concerned about the danger the seal posed to the public.
