It makes you wonder how anyone could harm them. Thanks

Oh my sister Gienia,
commercial fishermen everywhere have long vilified seals and other marine mammals, blaming them for the dimiinishing commercial catches brought on by overfishing and fishing technology.

I have seen bullet-riddled seals sea lions, dolphins along this long coast for much of my life. The older fishermen have been proud to declare their shooting to me, until passage of the Marine Mammal Protection Act in the US. Recently I yelled at two women who were running around a dying sea lion with their dog. This beautiful monster probably died due to the may have been dying from a cat disease caught from cat litter disposal in urban areas washing into the rivers, bays, ocean.
Toxoplasma gondii causes deadly brain swelling in these huge and magnificent beings. A couple summers ago we had two deaths right near one another, and seven within 4 miles.

Here, where I live, I've watched them underwater in their incomparable agility, and they've watched us while chasing anchovies into the shorebreak of a wild coast. Rafts of them, and choruses of seals on wild ocean rocks compete with sea lion bassi on the next rocks south.

Should this recent one have died from Tg, I'll post findings. on news.
