Sea Lion Saved from Streets of San Francisco


Sometimes, it simply is a wonderful feeling to see some good news in the world of animal awareness.

Here is a story that shows you there are some good moments in life – in this case especially in the life of this sea lion.

“It’s not unusual to see a sea lion in San Francisco. For more than 25 years, California sea lions have been frequent visitors to San Francisco’s PIER 39, hauling out on the floating docks by the hundreds.

What is unusual, however, is to see a sea lion haul out of the water at a marina and cross the busy streets of San Francisco. But that’s exactly what happened last week when a sea lion pup found himself lost in San Francisco’s Marina District.

Luckily for this lost pup, he didn’t get far before the San Francisco Police Department arrived on the scene to keep him out of harm’s way until The Marine Mammal Center’s trained rescue team could bring him back to our hospital for care.”
