Dead Sea Lions in Puget Sound - Again
FEBRUARY 1, 2012
The bodies of seven sea lions with bullet wounds were recently found on the Nisqually River. The animal protection group Seal Sitters says a necropsy showed that the sea lion had suffered a shark bite and had twisted intestines in addition to a bullet wound. KING says one of the Nisqually casualties was a Steller sea lion, protected under the Endangered Species Act. This has happened before. I don't know whether these are disgruntled fishermen or regular jerks.
