SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A distressed sea lion monitored over the past 10 days at Naval Air Station North Island was rescued Friday by SeaWorld San Diego, according to theme park officials.
SeaWorld had tried to rescue the 435-pound marine mammal a couple of times previously, but it wasn't until Friday morning, when they tranquilized the male, that they succeeded.
According to SeaWorld, he was on a beach, lethargic and in distress. At one point he appeared to suffer a seizure.
Animals care experts and veterinarians were stabilizing the creature and assessing his condition. SeaWorld officials said he appeared to be 25 percent underweight and severely dehydrated.
Tests will be run over the next several days to determine the cause of the seizures.
So far this year, SeaWorld has cared for more than 400 marine mammals, turtles and birds that were rescued from the wild.
