ORLANDO, Fla. (WFTV) -- An Ohio family said they will never forget their vacation to SeaWorld Orlando after they had a close encounter with one of the theme park's animals when it tried to escape.

A sea lion took off down the visitor's walkway Saturday.

Park employees were able to catch it with a net and get it safely back to its home.

About two weeks ago, a penguin managed to get over the barrier at SeaWorld's new Antarctica attraction.

The penguin was also safely returned to its home.

They didn't get the sea lion safely back in it's 'home', it put it back in it's prison! Sea World and places like it are just that, prisons for innocent marine life forced to do petty amusements for dead food... Do NOT support these horrific places... and the dolphins that aren't 'lucky' enough to get chosen for a life of hell are brutally slaughtered in Taiji Japan... entire families butchered in front of each other... SEA WORLD KILLS, and if you buy a ticket, so do YOU!!
