The baby sea lion that snuck into a La Jolla restaurant is being fed and treated by specialists at SeaWorld San Diego, who said Friday that the malnourished and emaciated animal was improving.

“She’s pretty content right now,” said SeaWorld senior animal care specialist Kevin Robinson. “She’s getting along great. She’s had a few good meals and plenty of buddies.”

And she’s been given the name Marina.

Employees at the Marine Room restaurant found the pup, which is about the size of a small dog, asleep on a seat near a window overlooking the ocean about 8 a.m. Friday, said manager Matt Caponi. Employees called a SeaWorld rescue team, and the pup was awake and moving around by the time the team arrived.
