An RCMP spokesperson said it appears two of the animals were struck by a vehicle on Tuesday night. "I mean, they haven't eaten", Fitzgerald said.
A seal is shown in a handout photo from Marystown RCMP.
"This is disturbing for the residents to watch", Fitzgerald said. "We are getting inundated with phone calls from people that are saying, 'You've gotta do something".
Seals have been turning up on the roads and other places they don't belong in Roddickton
"I don't see that there's any way that these seals are going to survive unless [DFO officers] pick them up and literally bring them back to the edge of the ice".
The town has asked for department of fisheries officials to intervene and rescue the seals.

Stenson is confident the seals will eventually get their bearings, but until they do he said people should keep their distance - don't go in for any seal selfies.
"We would like to remind people that it is illegal to disturb a marine mammal and human interaction can disturb an animal's normal life processes and can result in injury or death of the animal", it added.
Stenson said both seals were stuck by cars, something Fitzgerald said happened after several days of hearing about near misses from Roddickton residents.More news: Italy and Poland want 'new spring' in Europe - Salvini
However, it's feeding season for the Harp seal, and he believes they traveled into a bay that surrounds Roddickton to feed when ice froze behind them, leaving them trapped.
This year, he says, limited ocean ice might be forcing the seals to settle for coastal ice, which increases their risk of stranding.
Fitzgerald fears the seals are too confused to find their way out of town. Previously, she said, an officer had to come in from the office in St. Anthony, 140 kilometres away. "This is hard for the little seals, because nobody wants to see animals hurt - but it's also hard for the town". The vast majority of the seals that are killed are between one and three months old.More news: Major League Baseball rumors: Former A's infielder Jed Lowrie, Mets agree to contract
