500 Sport Fishermen At Bonneville Dam, Only 38 Sea Lions

From Sea Lion Defense Brigade:
Bonneville Dam – The Army Corps of Engineers reports they have viewed 38 California Sea Lions in the area. Today there are an estimated 500 fishermen on the surrounding banks.

It is obvious which species is overfishing. Yet, scapegoating continues and fishermen are actively hazing Sea Lions by throwing large rocks at their heads! While documenting this cruelty, 2 SLDB female observers were threatened with bodily harm.

There is no government agency checking fishing licenses or regulating catch limits today. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife can employee 6 workers to brand and KILL Sea Lions with tax payers money but can’t check fishing limits?!

Humans have many food options, Sea Lions do not!

Until the states of Washington and Oregon take responsibility for the real causes of the salmon decline and stop politically scapegoating Sea Lions, BOYCOTT COLUMBIA RIVER SALMON! See More

  1. Redneck stupidity is what it is and is manifest in their delusional and entitlement thinking in many ways: Wolves take their elk and deer. Raptors take their game birds and eagles and storks taker their fish.

  2. Branding is happening again started 8/2014 at Astoria. It is barbaric and extremely painful making them scream and moan. Please look at Sea Lion Defense Brigade facebook page. Thank you.
