California sea lions have invaded the coast of Oregon. In the city of Astoria the entire mooring basin has been occupied. As these photographs show the animals have taken over every square meter of the docks. They’re actually piled on top of each other.





A recent sea lion count in this marina alone tallied 2,340 – a “mind-boggling number,” according to Bryan Wright of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Apparently the creatures were attracted by swarms of fish.

Time for a Seelöwe update. In this solitaire challenge the player represents government officials attempting to coordinate wildlife experts, the police, and possibly the National Guard (bring on the A-10 Warthogs!) in a removal effort. This mission must be accomplished while avoiding negative publicity or angering environmentalists and animal rights advocates.

Removal of the sea lions "with extreme prejudice" will be possible when the player chooses the military escalation option. Of course, a troop surge increases the danger of a public relations fiasco.

Remember, sea lions were an element of the U.S. Navy defense system called the Marine Mammal Program.

Of course, these animals were never trained for offensive warfare.

That's a relief.

I initially thought the Germans were getting ideas above their station again.

At least instead of trading high explosives, they just beat you guys mercilessly and repeatedly in the World Cups.

Didn't your team do better than the English in the last Cup?
