Sky7 HD was over Jack Rabbit Beach where the mammal was on the sand. That's the main beach at Candlestick Point State Park.

It's unknown how long it's been stranded. A naturalist on site tells ABC7 News reporter Melanie Woodrow the animal may have have been hit by a boat and there may be propeller marks on its right flipper.
