CASTLE ROCK, WASHINGTON — A 600-Ibs sea lion was found wandering a "significant distance" on a road in Washington on February 23rd.
According to the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office, the sea lion was caught in a wooded area in the city of Castle Rock.
They believe the sea lion wound up there after traveling up Delameter Creek from the Cowlitz River.
Video footage of the capture shows the sea lion fluster as officials attempt to get the animal into a cage on the back of a trailer.
The Department of Fish and Wildlife triumphed and managed to remove it from the area, but only after local officials waited with the animal for several hours until wildlife staff could arrive with a trailer.
Fortunately, the wayward sea lion was returned to the Columbia River.
