At around 3 a.m Tuesday morning, police received a call regarding a sea lion pup wandering along Ocean Blvd. near Grand Avenue in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego, California. By the time officers arrived, the pup had made his way to a parking lot, making himself comfortable under a SUV. Officers attempted to coax the animal out from under the vehicle, but according to 10 News, the pup refused to move.
NBC San Diego reports a police lieutenant finally arrived at the scene with a catch pole, and as another officer slowly backed the SUV away from the animal, the lieutenant was able to snare the pup. Officers then released him at the nearby beach where he finally wandered back into the water.
According to CBS8, the sea lion was not injured during the incident.
