ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - About 200 sea lions have invaded the docks at the East Basin Mooring at the Port of Astoria.

They haul out when they’re not feasting on smelt near the mouth of the Columbia River. Biologists expect they’ll hang around for Chinook salmon in the spring.

KGW reports (https://bit.ly/1CtgV1U ) the sea lions are damaging docks and a nuisance to boaters. But all attempts to harass the animals into leaving, such as putting up wires and dangling ribbons, have failed.
