Wounded Sea Lion in Cholla Bay rescued and treated

August 4, 2014
A wounded sea lion spotted in the rocky area of Cholla Bay was rescued, treated, and returned to sea on Thursday morning, July 31st. The appearance of a sea lion that seemed to have fishing net wrapped around its neck caught the attention of a number of people recently who began reporting the sighting on social networks, trying to alert appropriate offices to help the animal. The sea lion itself had been spotted climbing out on the rocks various times daily over a period of nearly a week. The young sea lion weighed about 45 kilograms, and rescuers had to administer local anesthesia in order to give the animal analgesics, antibiotics, and an anti-inflammatory. People living in La Cholla gave fish in order to feed the sea lion. Finally, rescuers took the sea lion, who they nicknamed “Pedrito” (given the affection they had for him), toward the sea and before they could let him go he took off on his own into the water, no longer having nets on his body.
