Poor thing. He was moving his head around but not too much more. The lifeguards sent for rescue. They got him into a net and then a crate, which was loaded into a truck. It was hot on the beach in the sun. I hope he got some water and some medical treatment. Lots of people watching with concern. This was on the dog beach in Encinitas this afternoon. We had breakfast/brunch out and then a 3-mile walk on this beach. We once saw a stranded sea lion in La Jolla, too. Someone said there isn’t enough food for them. Sad.
