A young sea lion was rescued Monday after it was found roaming Interstate 880 in Oakland, a month after a similar incident in Richmond.
The whiskered sea creature, believed to be a year old, was found waddling on the center divide of northbound I-880 near the Oakland Coliseum about 5:45 a.m., authorities said. An Oakland police officer corralled the sea lion and put it inside a patrol cruiser and drove to the Oakland Animal Shelter.
When the cops got to him, he’d already crossed at least three southbound lanes of freeway traffic. This pup is both lucky and talented.
