KTLA -- Marine life experts have called how some people are treating sick sea lion pups washing ashore on Southern California beaches - including the trend of taking selfies with them - appalling. They are trying to educate people about the problem and urging people not to take selfies with them. Volunteers on Sunday held a fundraiser in Orange County in order to help the animals. Kacey Montoya reports from Huntington Beach for the KTLA 5 News at 6 on May 3, 2015.
