For now at least. Hopefully he'll find a permanent place very soon since he'll need help.

Sorry about that, I didn't finish my post properly.

Bless his heart, looks like a lot of places want him though. I'd take him but, I live in the country, not the best place for a sea lion.

The cruelty of fishermen here in California astounds me. That being said, I almost wish he had been humanley put to sleep. He has to live in a sightless world forever, listen for his food to arrive, this to me is cruel and I think it's just too much for a wild animal like this. He needs to cross over the Sea Lion's Rainbow Bridge...

The cruelty of some people is beyond belief. Thanks for sharing this story. I pray Silent Knight finds a wonderful place to live out the remainder of his life with all the special care and love he needs and deserves.

Some humans do not care about animals, the only way they will stop hurting them, if it is against the law. We need a new congress,we need people in congress that care about other living species that we share this planet with.
We must teach our children and grandchildren that animals matter, that is where our hope lies....they will change the world.....

Humans did this to him... humans need to insure that he has every chance to thrive.

Some people are just not human, who in their right mind would want to shoot this animal the evil heartless idiots. I wish the the same thing to happen to them.

How can people be so cruel as to shoot a beautiful animal that has done nothing to you and is no peril to your life? People can commit the most perverse acts with no conscience biting them back for what they did. As for Silent Night, could be better to let him go instead of condoning him to a world of darkness and a fish tank.

From what he has been through and has come this far, he deserves to live as happy life as possible, even he is blind does not mean that he can not enjoy life.
