SPIN CYCLE

Sometimes Sea Lions seem to go into a mediative state.  They come to the surface and slowly roll over. For lack of a better description they appear as If they’re drunk.

LIONS ARE SAFE

Some of you might remember a recent posting of mine describing how someone put spikes around a float to stop the Lions from using it. I got  DFO (Dept. of Fishier’s & Oceans) to remove the spiked strips from the float.The Lions can hop up without fear of being injured.

This link will take you to CHEK news. It’s the first news item.

I was down in Ucluelet today.I took some shots of a bunch of Lions on a float out in Ucluelet’s harbour.I didn’t notice it at the time,but it appears that someone has placed some spiked 2X4 strips around the perimeter to prevent the Lions from wanting to get up onto the float. Anyone who knows Sea Lions,know they love to hang out on wharfs,docks & floats barking away contently.

Whoever owns this float has done this on purpose with no regard to the Lions being injured by these 6 inch spikes! I am looking into this to see If I can get these spikes pulled or this float pulled from the water? The Lions are beginning to come back into the harbour for safe refuge from the storms.

I’m sure some have already been injured! Will keep you informed on how this unfolds?
