The Marine Mammal Center rescued a sea lion at Olde Port Beach in Avila Beach Sunday. 

The center got the report and arrived to Avila Beach around 11:30 a.m. Operations Manager Diana Kramer said when they got there they saw the sea lion was entangled in what appeared to be a packing strap and was extremely underweight. 

The sea lion is now at their facility in Morro Bay, later it will be sent to the main animal hospital where it will undergo a full examination. 

Once the mammal is back to a normal weight it will be sent back out into the ocean.
