Watch: Abby the Sea Lion Rescued Off Dana Point


A crew from the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach on Wednesday rescued a sick sea lion—since nicknamed Abby—that beached herself on some rocks at Strands Beach in Dana Point.

The crew used a GoPro video camera to record the whole thing from a first-person angle.

The PMMC reports that Abby is now resting "with her other pen-mates/characters, McGee, Franks, TonyD, Gibbs, Ziva and Ducky."

Apparently those are all names of characters on the TV show NCIS ...

Bonus shots of a sea lion cuddle party at the end of the video!

I can't believe this...let nature take it's course. Place the animal on a protected status and the population soars. Too many animals...no balance, not enough food to sustain the numbers etc. Oh, I know. "They are so cute and cuddly" Whatever. Cull the heard and it will strenghten the population and you won't have sick, starving animals dying on the rocks...

They're just dogs of the sea. Dogs die every day.
