Sea lion caught wandering near NorCal school

KNIGHTSEN, Calif. The sea lion was spotted Saturday wandering on a road near San Francisco.

It was over a mile from the nearest navigable water source.

Police herded the animal into a fenced off area of the school grounds.

Marine Mammal Center volunteers arrived with a large crate. They captured the sea lion so it can be checked out by veterinarians for possible re-release into the wild.
