Sea lion necropsy updates

It has been confirmed that the Steller sea lion that was necropsied on a West Seattle private beach on February 2 was shot. This was confirmed by radiograph and bullet retrieval.

Additionally, it is believed that the second California sea lion necropsied late yesterday afternoon likely died from a bullet, but test results have not yet been completed to confirm this suspicion.
