This pristine female Coho Salmon had a close call with a Sea Lion but later met her demise from a fisherman. People should be reminded to be cautious around these animals, the attached links shows what can happen if you act carelessly. I've talked to crew members of moored boats and most have seen dogs snatched off the docks and disappear. I have not experience that yet but I don't doubt their stories. See the two previous days of photo's.

You are quite right about the danger of Sea Lions, they might be great to see but can be a real problem.
