Sea Lions Shot Near Seattle

This is in our own backyard.

Total cowards. I hope they're caught because they could face a 50 thousand dollar fine. The deaths are a violation of the Marine Mammals Act and, because it’s a protected species, the shooting death of a Steller sea lion also violates the federal Endangered Species Act.

Of course, will be there sufficient resources expended to catch the killers?
