States Hoping Native Americans Can Kill Sea Lions in Columbia River
As you may have heard, lots of people in the Pacific Northwest worry about how to increase the salmon count. Not only do Idaho fisherman want more salmon making it up the Snake River, but also killer whale lovers say the lack of fish is starving the orcas. Well, some people are noticing sea lions are eating about 6 percent of the salmon heading up the river! Sea lions aren't endangered. If tribes had permission to kill sea lions right below the Bonneville Dam, it could help. But will they? First the states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho need permission for them to.
