There's a rather cute photo of him basking in the sun on the back of a highway patrol cruiser:

I saw this this morning. Apparently the sea lion had been shot in the head and was confused, thus ending up so far from the water. The authorities are assessing if the bullet should be removed or if it would be better left alone. How sad.

Poor guy. Some sicko getting a cheap thrill, no doubt.

Hopefully this will become more than another cutesy story. I'd like to see it further raise awareness of cruelty to animals.

He's had surgery to remove the bullet and has been released back into the ocean. http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/science....ap/index.html
