Officials are expected to decide Monday whether to euthanize a California sea lion who was found shot in the head.

The 300 pound sea lion was found earlier this month on a south Sausalito beach. The gunshot blast took out one eye and may have permanently damaged the other.

Vets say if the sea lion is blind as they suspect, he will likely be put to sleep.

The center says he was probably shot by a fisherman.
