Seal (Or Sea Lion?) Sadness

Fair warning, this is sad stuff. Walking on Alki beach this evening we noticed this sad sight. A large sea lion (not seal as I originally thought), very dead, skull partially exposed, on the beach, just past the tide line, and the really sad part that white blob to the right is a pup, still alive just laying there blinking and breathing. If that doesn't bum you out nothing will. I'll find some happy news to post soon. BTW, there's security tape around them both, and the seal sitters are there watching over the pair.

Fret not, kindhearted one, I think what you're seeing here is coincidental. That seal (or sea lion? I know there was a dead one in the area recently) has been dead for a while, or it wouldn't have so much decomposition going on. I doubt it is related to the baby, whose mama is probably out plying the waves as is normal for harbor seals with wee babes.

do they know what killed the dead adult? Weird. Shark, octopus?
