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.
