Baby sea lion ‘parks’ under police car in Ocean Beach

A baby sea lion holed up under a police cruiser in Ocean Beach Wednesday, while officers waited on a SeaWorld wrangler to coax it out.

Officers received a call about 4 a.m. about a sea lion at Abbott Street and Newport Avenue, San Diego police Officer Julie Mills said. After officers arrived, the seal scuttled under the cruiser, where it remained for several hours, Mills said.

The sea lion did not appear injured, but officers waited for daylight to contact someone at SeaWorld to help coax the marine mammal out, she said.

As of 7 a.m., the pinniped was still under the cruiser.
