No reprieve for Columbia sea lions

Snapz_pro_xscreensnapz001

A federal judge says state governments can proceed with plans to kill up to 85 California sea lions a year for five years in the Columbia River at Bonneville Dam, where they gather annually to plunder the spring chinook salmon run.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers calculates that, based on observation, the sea lions have taken from between .4 percent and 4.2 percent of the run each year between 2002 and 2007.
