A remarkably unexpected phone call was received by Captain Eric Anderson of the Washington Division of Fish and Wildlife.
A 600-pound sea lion was found on an early Sunday morning, sitting in the facility of a country road.
Because she was 2 miles away from the Cowlitz River, it was rather uncommon to see a sea lion such as her be this far-off from water.
Based on OregonLive, “Steller sea lions are discovered together with the northern Pacific Ocean yet typically travel up river systems. They wander around searching for food. [Scott Schroeder, WDFW wild animals police officer] stated that he has actually observed sea lions in different places, even 30 or more miles from the Cowlitz, however not in this history.”
It was an obstacle for the wild animal’s police officers to return the giant sea lion to the water.
The complying with clip illustrates just how the rescue group relentlessly works to entice the sea lion (who is supposedly expecting, too) onto a trailer as well as keeping her from going even more right into the forest.
If it wasn’t for the brave policemen, the sea lion would certainly not also make it through.
