Ozzie was under a tree when police got there and did not have any visible injuries. Officials with the Marine Mammal Center in the Marin Headlands responded to care for it, Bosques said.
Ozzie is tagged and police were able to pick it up in a towel and place it in a cage in a quiet area. No one is being allowed to visit Ozzie so it doesn’t get scared, Bosques said.MORE NEWS: Police Arrest Teen Suspect for Friday-Evening Homicide in SF Excelsior District
