Have we learned nothing from the lesson of The Kaibab? (http://depts.alverno.edu/nsmt/ youngcc/research/kaibab/story1.html) For years now we have been diligently protecting the sea lion from harm and now we are up to our armpits in them. Is it possible that our egotistical, self rightous attempts to control nature has backfired on us once again? Could it be that the missing runs of spring salmon are actually in the bellies of our beloved sea lions? For some reason we humans constantly create discord with every step we take. If we could just learn to keep our noses out of natures business, isn't possible that nature might just know how to take care of herself? She did a fine job of it for millions of years before us. For God's sake, butt out!
