There were two more sea lions stranded today (8/2) south of Poplar Beach in an area where there were a number of people and unleashed dogs. The Marine Mammal Center team said they would try to come, but they were dealing with a number of strandings today. The MMC staff person said that each truck can only handle one sea lion, and this complicates matters. The HMB police were called in the hope that people and their dogs could be advised to stay away from the sea lions.
