Blonde Bomber's Story
Blonde Bomber, a young California sea lion, was spotted at the famous PIER 39 in San Francisco with a packing strap "noose" stuck around his neck. Luckily, someone knew to call The Marine Mammal Center for help!
Once back at our hospital, our skilled veterinarians removed the packing strap and cleaned the swollen wound. After a week of rest and food, Blonde Bomber was ready to return to the wild, and was released back to his ocean home.
Sea lions are intelligent and curious animals and sometimes think ocean trash is something to play with or eat. One way to help animals like Blonde Bomber is to cut packing straps and other plastic loops before disposing of them properly.
