Sea lions found shot on Puget Sound, US officials say

Sea lions found shot on Puget Sound, US officials say

28 January 2012 Last updated at 13:00 ET

Eight sea lions have been found shot dead in the US state of Washington in the past few weeks, wildlife officials have told a local TV station.

The bodies of seven sea lions with bullet wounds were recently found on the Nisqually River, KING-TV reports.

An eighth sea lion was found dead in West Seattle on 23 January. The Seal Sitters conservation group said it, too, had been shot.

Fishermen regard sea lions as pests because they prey on salmon.
