Sick Sea Lion Pup Rescued After Showing Up In Restaurant Booth

Array ( [post_title] => Sick Sea Lion Pup Rescued After Showing Up In Restaurant Booth [post_content] =>




LOS ANGELES, Feb 4 (Reuters) - A skinny sea lion pup with a taste for the finer things in life turned up on Thursday inside a fancy San Diego restaurant, where it settled down into a booth.


The malnourished mammal appears to have arrived at The Marine Room after sauntering down a ramp from the beach and going through a door left open by a cleaning crew, said Chef Bernard Guillas.


The early morning guest quickly made an impression on the establishment's staff, as the female pup climbed into a booth "almost like she wanted to have dinner," the chef said.



The menu at the white table-cloth restaurant, which juts out into the Pacific Coast and is buffeted by waves during high tide, includes rarified dishes like "ginger kalbi lacquered tofu" and "ahi tuna and foie rossini."


But the pup was hardly given a chance to get comfortable. A rescue team from the SeaWorld San Diego theme park was called in to pull the barking mammal from the booth and place it in a net. The mammal was then taken to SeaWorld for care, said David Koontz, a spokesman for the tourist center.


The lethargic pup is eight months old and weighs only 20 pounds (9 kg), less than half the normal size for its age, Koontz said. But SeaWorld staff is "guardedly optimistic" they can nurse it back to health and return the animal to the wild, he said. (Reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis in Los Angeles; Editing by Sandra Maler)

Gun-Toting 'Batman' Caught On Camera Robbing Dollar Store

Array ( [post_title] => Gun-Toting 'Batman' Caught On Camera Robbing Dollar Store [post_content] =>




A man dressed as Batman robbed a dollar store in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday night, police said.


He wore the Caped Crusader's trademark mask and a gray t-shirt bearing the fictional superhero's famous logo during the armed holdup, NBC Miamir eports.


Surveillance video shows the suspect entering the 123 Dollar Store on N Semoran Boulevard at 8 p.m.





Orange County Sheriff's Office wrote on Facebook that he wielded a gun to demand money from two female clerks. They complied and he casually walked out the door with the cash.


Police described the unidentified man as either white or hispanic and of thin build.


A person matching his description hit up the Dollar General Store some four miles away on South Goldenrod Road around 90 minutes later, the Orlando Sentinel reports.


Authorities have not yet released surveillance footage from the later robbery. It's not been confirmed whether it was the same man. It's also unclear how much money was stolen in each incident, but the clerks at both of the stores were unharmed.


Anyone with information should call Crimeline at 800-423-8477.
