This California sea lion was named Senor Cinqo because the Marine Mammal Rescue folks rescued him from Spanish Banks on May 5.
He had been shot twice in the face and has lost one eye and several incisors.
He was emaciated when he was found weak and unable to escape his rescuers.
He is responding well to treatment but it remains to be seen if he will be able to be released back into the wild. If he recovers, he will need a new home.
Whoever the cowardly person who shot him in the face with a small-calibre hand gun was, they deserve to drown in the pee of a thousand camels.
