    U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg in Washington, D.C., ruled that up to 30 California sea lions can be killed for eating endangered salmon bottled up at a dam on the Columbia River, but fisherman are permitted to coninue fishing for salmon. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency decided that sea lions were eating 4.2% of salmon and that it was a signifigant obstacle in restoring the salmon. However, fishermen are allowed to take up to 17%. Since January 1st, 2013, more than 900 sea lions have become stranded and more than 500 of them have died from dehydration and starvation, and Federal Officials have declared an "unusual mortality event" occuring on the Pacific Coast with the sea lion population. We ask that the judge reconsider this ruling and drop the number of salmon that fishermen are allowed to take rather than killing sea lions to protect salmon. Stop Killing Sea Lions.
