Sea lion injuries

Mike sent these pictures shortly after arriving back on Race Rocks in September with the notation:  “I photographed a few of the walking wounded this afternoon. These pictures show a couple of pretty serious wounds that seem to be on the mend. The big Steller marched up the hill and pushed everyone around for a while. He finally settled down but tended to keep his wound off the ground. I wonder if that could be an orca or shark wound? With the gale today there are about 75 Stellers and 100 Californians surrounding my house. Very interesting and loud! ”
