CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Drivers near Southern California's notorious Interstate 405 had reason to tone down their road rage when it was revealed the thing stopping traffic was a baby seal on city streets several miles from the ocean.
Sheriff's officials said Monday that deputies were called to the scene when a driver said he had to swerve to miss the seal at a busy intersection in Carson between the 405 and the Home Depot Center stadium.
The deputies cornered the seal and did their best to keep it out of the street until representatives from Marine Animal Rescue arrived to take it to a shelter for examination.
The seal was believed to be less than a year old and most likely got to Carson via the Dominguez Channel, which runs alongside the 405.
