Remember the case of the "missing" sea lions of San Francisco's Pier 39? Well, they have been "found":
Marine experts now believe that the Pier 39 sea lions have gone to Oregon. A couple thousand California sea lions showed up off the coast of Oregon with their typical bark that separates them from the growling Stellar sea lions that usually live in Oregon.
Dan Harkins is the Sea Lion Caves general manager. He says: "We're seeing the sea lions coming up this way from California because of the feeding. If the cold water fish move north to find colder waters, the sea lions have to eat and they follow the fish wherever they go.”

We are trying to get the feds to allow a kill on the
California sea lions as they are 90 miles inland at our DAM. They take one bite out of our salmon and dump them. They have been increasing in numbers for the last 5 years.
Not even a postcard!
