Sea lion and her newborn pup found near Coronado bike path

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Chopper 8 was high above Coronado early Wednesday morning and caught a sea lion and her newborn pup lounging on the beach at the south end of the Silver Strand.

News 8 has been told that the pup was born at 6:00 a.m. Wednesday near the bike path. The Coronado Police Department called SeaWorld to come and check the condition of the mama sea lion and her new baby.

Once on scene, the SeaWorld team determined that the pup and mom looked healthy, but they were concerned about the proximity of the sea lions to the bike path and highway, so the pup was moved to the edge of the water. The mama seal followed and then the SeaWorld team left them alone and reminds the public to keep a safe distance from both mom and baby.
