On this day there were three docks completely packed with sea lions. They are protected by the Federal Governments 1972 Marine Mammal Protect Act and they have become a nuisance. There are reports of dogs being snatched off docks, and in Vancouver B.C. a sea Lion actually pulled a young girl off the dock and into the water. Each Sea Lion eats a tremendous amount of valuable fish and they are detrimental to businesses, vicious and dangerous.
