LA JOLLA, CALIF. — An unusual creature found itself barking up the wrong cave in southern California.
A sea lion climbed 145 stairs up a tunnel from the cave below into the La Jolla cave store.
Workers say they were getting ready to close the register when the sea lion waddled through the front door.
They say they chased it around for a while, eventually using some salmon to lure it back down the tunnel to its home.
Employees say this is the first time a sea lion has visited the store.
