  • Agreement postpones killing of Columbia River sea lions

    By Joseph B. Frazier
    Portland, Oregon (AP)

    The authorized killing of California sea lions at Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River would be postponed under a proposal agreed to by the Humane Society of the United States and federal and state governments.

    The Humane Society filed a motion for a preliminary injunction against the authorization for killing the animals on March 28 and said it would seek a temporary restraining order if it wasn’t granted, the “lethal removal” was likely to begin.
