Marine plastic garbage is carried by ocean currents far from its source; sometimes it comes from other continents situated on the other side of the world. This sea lion as many other marine animals end up ingesting these indigestible plastic objects that cause them severe obstructions of the digestive tract and a terrible death after prolonged suffering.
