Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A Washington state woman captured video of an unusual parking lot scene involving a sea lion that refused to budge from the top of a car.

Melanie Sceva Hill said in a Facebook post she came across the strange sight Saturday on Whidbey Island.

The post included photos of the sea lion as well as a video of the animal looking around at the spectators before spreading out on the roof for a rest.

"Only on Whidbey Island!" Hill wrote. "A [sea lion] on the roof of someone's car in the Nichols Brothers parking lot. This is happening right now and I guess he's been there for a while!"

Witnesses said two deputies with the Island County Sheriff's Office eventually arrived and helped coax the sea lion, which had fallen asleep, down from atop the Honda Civic.
