(Newser) – A sea lion found wandering near a runway at Oakland International airport was taken yesterday to a nearby wildlife rehabilitation center, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. The six-foot male, nicknamed "Saps" by wildlike workers, didn't appear to be sick or injured. "He seemed kind of lost and it was kind of odd, the way he was looking at us," said the airport manager.
