Sea Lion Found Relaxing in Luxury Californian Hotel

Quote:
A sea lion pup decided life in the ocean wasn’t for her after pitching up inside a luxury Californian hotel.

Guests at the Pantai Inn in La Jolla were surprised to find the finned mammal propped up on chair at the patio bar.

Hotel employees said the female sea lion waddled its way across a street before deciding on relaxing in the comfort of the cushioned seat.

‘I got an email saying that we had a sea lion pup lounging on our patio,’ manager Shane Pappas told AFP. ‘The poor little girl was lost and malnourished.’

The 27.5lb creature is now ‘on the mend’ after experts from SeaWorld in San Diego came to her aid at the hotel.

She will be monitored for the next six weeks and nursed back to health before being released back into the wild.

A number of severely malnourished and dehydrated pups have been coming to shore along the Orange County coastline in recent weeks.

More sick sea lion pups have stranded themselves on southern California beaches so far in 2013 than in the previous five years combined, but scientists are still unsure what is afflicting the animals.

Re: Sea Lion Found Relaxing in Luxury Californian Hotel

What country did a sea lion (big one) take a stroll on the street?

Re: Sea Lion Found Relaxing in Luxury Californian Hotel

Wonder why the young pups are being abandoned so early?
This is not a good sign.

Not exactly a "seal of approval" for the hotel but close enough.
