Several photos were sent to ABC7 by the Guerra Family from Texas. Their daughter took the photos on Thursday and Friday next to Pier 239. The sea lion appears to have fishing line wrapped around its neck in the photos.
Pier 39 told ABC7 they called animal rescue experts, but they have not been able to catch the sea lion to cut the wire away.
Animal rescue officials say they do not want to distress the sea lion any more than it might already be, so they will wait until early morning before attempting another rescue.
