In others, he was executed and the ashes were spread to the ocean.

One thought on “Sea Shepherd :: Scapegoating + Bad Math = Devastation for Federally Protected Sea Lions at the Bonneville Dam

  1. It surely does ring true that some of mankind finds something that can’t defend itself to blame for the woes that we have created.
    It sickens me. We have many food choices, we can choose to not eat something that is food for another life if it will help in some way. And we wonder why we are now reaping the whirlwinds of what we have set in motion.
    Yisraela
