ORLANDO, Fla. —

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.
