They're back! Sea lions, salmon converge at Bonneville Dam

PREDATORS — It's become an annual spring event. Hungry sea lions follow endangered salmon runs up the Columbia River and feast on them at the bottom of the Bonneville Dam.

If the sea lions are caught in the act, they can be killed by state workers under a court judgment that gives priority to endangered salmon stocks.

 A campaign to stop the killing is becoming an annual tradition as well.
