Steller Sea Lion

Steller Sea Lion

 

 

Decemer 29, 2015 –  Alysha Elsby and Victoria Souze went by WDFW boat to Point Roberts to examine this Steller Sea Lion. Four new trained responders met us to assist in the necropsy. We brought the head back with us to Bellingham.  He was old and big: 13 feet, 10 inches. His blubber layer was thin and he was full of parasites. Unfortunately, once the head was x-rayed we found a bullet lodged in his skull.
