Wild animals must be kept wild to respect

People think those wild animals are friendly and easily tamed. They are cute and it's tempting to treat them like your dogs or cats. But they are wild. It's dangerous and they may have diseases. Thank Marine Animal Rescue to report this incidence and warn us this is very illegal, a violation of the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

This sickly confused sea lion pup was desperately seeking warmth. It didn't approach a human to be petted. Luckily, she kept her hands away from the pup and did not get bitten.
If you see injured or distressed wild animals, call Animal Control (or me to get the right number to call).
