A new law allows some Native American tribes to kill sea lions that have been devouring the region’s endangered salmon and steelhead — as long as they first get a permit.
The law, passed by Congress and signed by President Trump last month, amends the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 to ease protections on California and Steller sea lions in the Columbia River, the Willamette River and their tributaries.
