在加利福尼亚路边发现海狮

.Sea Lion Found on California Road
A sea lion was spotted this week along a rural roadside in central California. The 300-pound animal apparently swam from the ocean into the inland canals and found its way on to a rural road in Los Banos, California, about 65 miles from the sea.
The adult male sea lion, which was found about a half-mile from the nearest canal, rested on the back of a highway patrol cruiser while officers waited for a marine rescue team to pick up the animal. The sea lion appeared to be in good condition and was expected to be held for several days for observation before being released into the ocean.
"We just think he went all the way through the San Joaquin River, into some canals, and probably got out and started wandering around," said Cynthia Schramm, a spokeswoman for the Sausalito-based Marine Mammal Center, "Maybe he was going after fish, and there are far fewer sea lions to compete with in the delta."
Sea lions have also been found in the Sacramento and Stockton areas, which are more than 50 miles inland. "Sometimes they follow the prey until they are so far away and don't know how to get back," Schramm said.
在加利福尼亚路边发现海狮
  在加利福尼亚中心一条运河旁的路边上出现了一只海狮。这只300磅重的动物显然是从海洋游到内陆运河的,并且在距离海洋大约65英里的加州的洛斯邦诺斯寻找它能够通向乡村小路的路线。

  这只在离当地最近的运河大约半英里处被发现的雄性成年海狮,在公路巡洋舰队的后面休息,当一位军官在等待一支舰队救援组时看到了它。这只海狮看上去状态很好,大家希望先留它几天进行观察再将它放回大海。

  "我们认为它应该是穿过了圣约昆河游进了一些其它运河,后来又游了出来,然后开始到处漫游,"一位索萨利托海洋哺乳动物中心的女发言人辛西娅说:"也许它是在追逐鱼群,而且在三角州几乎没有与它竞争的海狮。"

  还有一些海狮出现在萨克拉曼多和斯多克顿50多英里的内陆上。辛西娅说:"有时它们会跟随着掠食目标直到跟得太远而且不知道如何返回。"
