El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The El Paso Zoo's two sea lions are having trouble getting along and that's forced the zoo to temporarily cancel its daily sea lion programs.
Last week the zoo's male sea lion, LB, bit the female sea lion named Sushi.
Injuries were minor -- but the two have been separated to try and prevent further conflict.
Zoo officials say it's common for male sea lions to exhibit aggressive behavior during the breeding season.
This is LB's first summer at the zoo. He arrived in May.
