California Highway Patrol officers received a pretty unusual call during rush hour traffic on Tuesday: “Uh, there’s a sea lion on the 101.”
A baby sea lion had wandered onto the busy highway!
Several drivers got out of their cars and tried to corral the baby sea lion before officers got to the scene.
Once police arrived the baby sea lion just “willingly jumped right into the backseat,” CHP said.
The animal appeared to be healthy and uninjured and was taken to the Peninsula Humane Society for care, authorities said.
