Brunch For One: Sea Lion Waddles Into Restaurant And Sits In Booth
A sea lion entered a California restaurant looking for food.
Employees at a California seafood eatery were shocked when a sea lion somehow made its way into a booth.
Bernard Guillas, the chef at The Marine Room in La Jolla, wasn't even ready to start serving when he saw the unexpected guest.
Animal experts say the eight-month-old pup was sick.
A SeaWorld rescue team was called to care for the malnourished and dehydrated sea lion, which also had an eye shut swollen.
Caretakers at SeaWorld’s Animal Rescue Center are cautiously optimistic about the pup’s recovery.
According to marine biologists, there has been a rise in sea lions coming to land looking for food due to the warm temperatures caused by El Nino.
SeaWorld says it has rescued 47 sea lions and other marine animals this year.
Marine biologists say that in 2015 they collected thousands of sick, starving or dead pups due to malnutrition.
