Watch the moment a sea lion gets comfortable on a car roof

Updated: 

Returning to your car to find an animal on it isn't all that unusual. Cats love to sit on cars to get warm, while birds often use them for a high vantage point.

But the scene that greeted the unfortunate owner of this Honda Civic Coupe involved a much more unusual animal.


A sea lion in Freeland, Washington clambered aboard the silver car and rested on its roof. As a crowd gathered, the sleepy animal stood up to inspect the audience before laying back down.

Melanie Sceva, who recorded the video and called the incident 'the weirdest thing', said that police were called and two sheriff's cars responded.

It is unknown how the officers managed to get the sea lion to move.
