The issue there (safety aside) would be what to do with the carcass. Stellar sea lions are far too big for most people without special equipment to remove from the water. And as someone who lives along the Columbia, I don't particularly like bloated sea lion corpses. We have a few of those already from the vigilante crew that already does this.Seems like a good band aid idea. I don't know. Question, why are they budgeting money to kill them humanely? Sell tags, get salmon recovery funds! This "We got to spend money so someones feelings don't get hurt" shit has got to stop.
