A rogue sea lion was saved as it crossed State Route 94 near San Diego recently. Two motorists stopped traffic to usher the sea lion to safety until rescue crews from Sea World arrived later on.
The funniest part of this story is that this particular sea lion has been rescued numerous times by Sea World staff for wandering off away from its habitat. Check out the statement from Sea World below:
“This specific sea lion has been rescued by SeaWorld’s Rescue team before and has a track record of wandering into odd places. In the beginning of November, this sea lion was rescued from Harbor Island Drive near the airport. After about a week of care, the animal was deemed ready and was returned. In December, the same sea lion was seen right along the boardwalk in Mission Beach, near a deli in Mission Bay and on the Navy Base in Point Loma.”
For context, the sea lion was rescued 3 miles from San Diego Bay, and 8 miles from the ocean. He was a long way from home!
