Marlineland sea lion dies
From Niagara This Week:
Baker, a Marineland sea lion, has died, the park said in a news released posted on the park’s website.
“We are all saddened to report the death of our old friend, Baker the sea lion on Monday, June 10, 2013. He died of natural causes,” the release said. “Today we are also celebrating his amazing life. You see, Baker may have been the world’s oldest sea lion. He turned 29 in early May. In the wild sea lions live to about 10 while in aquariums usually no more than 15. Baker almost doubled that number and that can be attributed to the wonderful care he has received through his many years at Marineland.”
