Sea Lion with Head Caught in Swim Mask Rescued at San Diego Beach

A SeaWorld rescue team helped out a sea lion pup who got stuck in tight situation.

The pup was found with a swimmer's mas wrapped around its neck and rescuers say that he was likely stuck in the mask for weeks before being found.

The mask was hindering his ability to eat...when he was found SeaWorld says he was malnourished and was almost 20 pounds underweight.

The pup was also treated for an infected cut caused by the mask, but according to the rescuers he is in generally good health and will be released back into the ocean into the next few months.
