The salmon battle? It’s raging? Sea lions shot dead? Wow – this headline has everything!
Immediately after seeing this I jumped to the story, and it’s actually very good. Apparently there are some fishermen up there getting sick of the sea lions eating all their salmon, so they’ve taken a “by all means neccessary” approach.
And this is the best line in the story: The discovery came one day after three elephant seals were found shot to death at a breeding ground near San Simeon in central California. Investigators will try to determine whether there is any link between the shootings, Gorman said.
So there could actually be a seal/sea-lion-murdering criminal underworld?
now I want to know what these sea lions are supposed to eat, if not salmon.
