Sea Lion Tried to Board Tug on Lake Michigan
_______

Chicago, November 17. - Lincoln Park (Zoo)'s escaped sea lion today attempted to board the Chicago and Great Lakes dredge tug Mentor, two miles off South Chicago.

Charles Kimball, fireman on the tug, was standing in the door of the fire room when the black body of the lion shot into view over the rail of the tug. He instinctively jumped back, only to fall seven feet into the stoke hold, suffering severe bruises about the head and shoulders.

The sea lion stuck its flippers over the tug rail and held on for a few brief seconds. The Capt. McGregor seized a rope, intent on lassoing the animal, but frightened it and it dropped back into the lake, to be seen no more.
