SAN FRANCISCO – California Highway Patrol officers rescued a baby sea lion from the middle of a busy highway Wednesday.

Troopers said they didn’t believe the call at first; they’re used to rescuing stray dogs and cats from the busy freeway.

Despite this, troopers said the sea lion hopped right into the back of the patrol car, probably eager to be rescued.

Veterinarians said they think the sea lion is about one year old and likely got lost on its way back from a creek.
