A curious sea lion was found wandering a highway in Southwestern Washington Tuesday morning.
According to Trooper Chelsea Hodgson, Official Washington State Patrol District 8 Public Information Officer for Kitsap, Mason, Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Pacific, and Wahkiakum counties, the sea lion was discovered on SR 4 near Hull Road (MP 17) which runs adjacent to the Grays River.
