Wounded sea lion takes up residence at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

The Sacramento River sea lion allegedly shot in the face by an angry fisherman in November will have his formal "coming out" on Friday at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo. The California sea lion, nicknamed Sgt. Nevis by his rescuers at the Marine Mammal Center, has been recovering at Six Flags since February. He was allowed to mingle with other sea lions at the park two weeks ago, which cleared the way for him to join other sea lions in the park's Seal Cove exhibit.

I wonder how PETA will try to make stink about this one.

Hobbes: "What's the point of attaching a number to everything you do?"
Calvin: "If your numbers go up, it means you're having more fun."

I was thinking the same thing Andy.

I am sure they are going to keep their mouths shut on this one.

My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

It pains me that human beings are so cruel and viscious, whether to animals or other human beings. Even worse is knowing the animal cruelty laws on the books in most states are PATHETIC. It is time for accountability in our laws for such cruel behavior.
