Sea lion recovering from gunshot wound to back
SAUSALITO, Calif. (KGO) -- Vets at the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito are hard at work saving a sea lion from a gunshot wound.
A 320-pound sea lion named King Neptune was found Wednesday at the Santa Cruz wharf. He had been shot in the back. Veterinarians say he was wounded by some sort of high-caliber weapon.
Neptune is currently on antibiotics. Vets are cautiously optimistic and hope King¬ will feel well enough to begin eating again soon.
