A sea lion who was found shot in the head and then nurtured back to health at Sausalito's Marine Mammal Center gets a new public home today.

"Silent Knight" made headlines last December when he was discovered on a Sausalito beach with a gunshot wound. His right eye was destroyed and his left eye was not functional either so he would never be able to survive in the wild.

Today he's getting used to his new digs at the San Francisco Zoo's family sea lion pool where another rescued sea lion named Henry is also moving in.
