A seal and sea lion that were injured from fishing line entanglement were returned into the ocean on Tuesday morning by the SeaWorld rescue team.

On Oct. 13, SeaWorld’s Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Program rescued a sub-adult male California sea lion on Coronado beach.  The following day, the team rescued an adult female harbor seal from Children’s Pool in La Jolla.

A veterinarian and animal care specialists cut the fishing line from the animal’s necks. Medicine was also used to treat the mammals wounds.

The animals returned to the ocean this morning.
