Sea lion who spent 4-day adventure inland finally rescued, back at sea

- A Steller sea lion in Sitka, Alaska was reportedly rescued by officials on Monday after he spent four days trapped on land, dehydrated and hungry.

The sea creature was first spotted around 2 a.m. on Friday morning, running down a road in southeast Alaska, the chief of the Sitka Volunteer Fire Department told the Anchorage Daily News.

Estimated to be roughly 8-feet long, the animal was later spotted near a high school around a quarter mile away from water.

On Sunday, the sea lion was "hiding out in the woods ... likely stressed, dehydrated and hungry," according to Julie Speegle, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
