Harbor seals are eating salmon in the Columbia and Willamette rivers. Really? These "Save The Earth" types are so ignorant that they not only don't know the difference between seals and sea lions, they don't even realize that sea lions don't actually eat salmon: they take a big bite out of one, then leave it to die as they move on to the next one.
If they actually ate an entire salmon, they'd be less problematic. As it happens, they don't. Therein lies the issue. Fortunately, great white sharks have taken note.
