The marine mammal was found in the afternoon stuck in a Vacaville canal, prompting rescue crews to respond to the scene located along Leisure Town Road.

Rescue operations were suspended due to fading light. Veterinarians noted the sea lion is in good condition and active, according to the Marine Mammal Center.

Crews are expected to return to the scene early Wednesday.
