SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— A sea lion rescued last week by Sausalito’s Marine Mammal Center was released back into the ocean in Santa Cruz Tuesday.
O’Neill, the 143-pound was found entangled in green-plastic fish netting surrounding her head.
“We know it had been on her for about a year. We’d seen her before. We get a lot of reports from the public. They’ve been great, especially in this area. They’re really concerned about animals. They’re concerned about the ocean,” said Doug Ross with the Marine Mammal Center.
