A young sea lion rescued from a Richmond, Calif. street has died of malnutrition.

Richmond police and rescuers captured the 4-month-old pup on May 21 after it was spotted waddling down the busy Richmond Parkway. The 3-foot-long critter was nicknamed "Moody," and taken to the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito.

Jim Oswald, the center's communications manager, says the pup couldn't recover from the malnourishment it suffered in the wild and died May 25.
