20 seal lions found dead since April: The story of sea lions being found dead along the mouth of the Columbia River continues. The most recent victims, most of them shot, were found in southern Washington and northern Oregon, a marine mammal researcher has told The Oregonian.

(By the way, you might want to have a look at a profile of the boat’s owner written by staff reporter Maureen O’Hagan.)
