SAN DIEGO – A rogue sea lion was found late Sunday waddling around the streets of La Jolla, authorities said.

The sea lion reportedly left his home at the La Jolla Cove sometime in the afternoon and was spotted on a sidewalk in the 1200 block of Coast Boulevard, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

Around 10 p.m., FOX 5 crews found the sea lion still hanging around on a sidewalk near the cove. Officials roped off the area where the animal was to keep it and the public safe.

Sunday’s rogue sea lion was the second incident involving an animal escaping the ocean in the past week.

On Tuesday, workers at the Omni La Costa Resort spotted a pregnant sea lion on the resort’s golf course. That animal was rescued from the course and taken by to the ocean by team members with SeaWorld Animal Rescue.

Officials did not say whether or not animal rescue teams had been contacted in Sunday’s incident.
