Sea lions eat fish. This is not a crime, just an evolutionary fact. As the spring Chinook salmon run begins in the Columbia River, California sea lions, who live in this Pacific Northwest river and are routinely scapegoated and labeled a "problem" -

The human race is the only problem animal on this planet. We should be having fewer children! My wife and I are sticking to one child for this reason.
We have to ask ourselves of our population; do we want quantity of human life, or quality?
Do we want most people fed or most people malnurished?
Do want a diverse biomass of species or just a few 'useful' ones?
Do we want more wars for resources or less?
Mother nature frequently causes environment stresses of various sorts, the more of us there are the worst it will be.
I'm not trying to be doomsday nut, these are just facts. How long can we dodge the bullets?

Please sign my petitions.

NOTED & SIGNED. Right on, Stuart O: the 'human' [sic!] race IS the ONLY problem animal on the Planet. Humans are the ones who have created their 'God' in their image: vengeful, wrathful, destructive. On the other hand our Mother Earth has had a working system of balance going on the Planet until human beings started screwing it up - until the point that humans now believe they have the right to torture, kill and lay to waste everything on the planet in the name of PROFITS & "PROGRESS." We are laying the ground for our own rapid extinction and I for one am not very sorry we are "going out of style" on Planet Earth.

It is way past time that humans got over the idea that the earth is all for them. We don't own it - we share it with so many other wondrous creatures, all of whom have the right to live their lives as nature intended.

Jane Velez-Mitchell, of the show ISSUES WITH JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL on HLN (Headline News channel) will be covering the sea lions story either this Friday, May 28th or the next Friday, depending on another developing story.......... Jane's show airs from 7 to 8pm Eastern time on HLN. A clip of the segment will also end up on her show's web page a day or two after the airing ( , look under MAN VS NATURE section on the right side of the page). I will try to post here when I confirm the actual date of the story.................
