On May 12, 2011, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Department of Commerce, authorized the states of Oregon and Washington to take lethal measures to remove up to 85 sea lions from the Bonneville Dam annually through June 2013. Per the letter signed by James H. Lecky, the animals can be shot by marksmen using high powered rifles or shotguns.  Their crime - eating endangered salmon - the very same salmon that fishermen are being encouraged to catch in the very same waters.
