Dead Sea Lions in Puget Sound - Again
FEBRUARY 1, 2012
Washington wildlife officials say eight sea lions have been found dead in the Puget Sound region in recent weeks — all apparently shot. The bodies of seven sea lions with bullet wounds were recently found on the Nisqually River. On Monday, a sea lion was found dead on West Seattle’s Lincoln Park beach. KING says one of the Nisqually casualties was a Steller sea lion, protected under the Endangered Species Act. This has happened before.
