Feds OK Killing Sea Lions

The killing of sea lions in Oregon and Washington has been approved for the second time.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Fisheries Service has approved the killing of sea lions in Washington and Oregon in order to protect engendered salmon populations. This is the second time the NOAA has approved such an event, which the organization says must be done since it can control how many salmon fishermen kill, but not how many sea lions kill. The Humane Society of the United States fought the first authorization in 2008, and may go back to court a second time, according to Reuters. Both Washington and Oregon can only kill 85 sea lions per year, and those animals must be known to eat the salmon.
