Sea Lion Found On Apartment Roof
Caught on tape, a sea lion on the roof!
Mike Kai shot the video of the wayward sea lion on his rooftop deck in Newport Beach, California.
So how did the sea lion get all the way up there?
It wasn't an easy journey for the sea lion to make. He had to come from the water across 250 feet of sand, down a short street, make two right turns then go up 30 steps, two and a half flights, to the rooftop.
Rowdy sea lions are a problem in this exclusive area of Southern California.
Boaters fight back using upturned deck chairs and wooden strips with nails to keep the sea lions from climbing aboard.
As for the wayward sea lion on the roof, he was taken to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
He's malnourished, only weighing 24 pounds, about half of what's normal.
They're feeding him fish smoothies and even named him Fiddler, as in Fiddler on the Roof.
