Sea lion found shot can’t return to the wild

A California sea lion found shot in the head at a Sausalito beach earlier this month will not be returning to the wild after an examination at the Marine Mammal Center on Monday found that he is completely blind.

The discovery that Silent Knight cannot see means that a new home must be found for him in the next several months or he might have to be euthanized, said Jeff Boehm, the center’s executive director — via redwolf.newsvine.com
