Entangled in Fishing Line then Rescued by The Marine Mammal Center - a Sea Lion Goes Back to the Ocean
Date:2/5/2010

After 20 rescue attempts, a hard-to-catch entangled California sea lion that was first spotted at San Francisco's famed PIER 39 docks, was successfully rescued, rehabilitated and released back to the ocean by The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA.

Using darts, veterinarians injected a mild sedative into the animal to calm and slow him down in order to facilitate a successful and safe rescue. The Center’s rescue team, both in the water and on land, were then able to rescue the sea lion and transported him to the Center’s Sausalito hospital headquarters.

At the Center, veterinarians anesthetized the malnourished sea lion and removed the monofilament nylon fishing line that was deeply imbedded into his neck and mouth, performed a physical, and they administered antibiotics and pain killers. During his 13-day-stay at the hospital, Abagnale ate just over 100 pounds of herring. On February 2, veterinarians examined the pinniped again and were pleased to see that the wounds were
