Sea lion pup jumps into San Diego man's car
SAN DIEGO (KABC) -- We see all kinds of creatures on the side of the road in California, but they're not usually from the ocean.
So imagine one driver's surprise when he stopped in San Diego for what he thought was a dog. It turns out it was a sea lion pup that desperately needed some help.
"I just kind of opened the door and got him over there, he ended up just jumping in the car, hung out in the front for a little bit, then went in the back," said Mike Belahunt, who found the pup.
Rescuers say the pup appears to be about 8 months old.
It's thin and dehydrated, but they hope to nurse it back to health.
