Donations are now being accepted to help Chippy… the wayward sea lion found this week along a road in the San Joaquin Valley.
Veterinarians have found a bullet lodged in the animal´s head… and say Chippy may need surgery and other medical care. The sea lion has been transferred to the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito.
The California Highway Patrol is leading the donation drive by creating a fund which will help with the expenses. CHP employees are chipping in… and asking the public to assist too.
Donations can be sent to the California Association of Highway Patrolmen in Sacramento.
