This is how bad a Bad Person I am.

Frustrating story hit the local news last night: six federally-protected sea lions were found shot dead at Bonneville Dam. (Followup article about the shooting investigation.) (Now a 5/7/08 piece saying that THEY MAY NOT HAVE BEEN SHOT, and that cause of death is unknown.)

Here's how I'm a Bad Person, though: The Oregonian's front page headline read "Sea lion vigilantes?," because the theory is that the shooters were upset over the sea lions eating salmon and legal challenges over a plan to move or kill the sea lions to protect the salmon runs. But the image that headline gave me? HEAVILY-ARMED SEA LIONS WITH GUNS IN THEIR FLIPPERS, CAMO ON THEIR FACES AND BINOCULAR SIGHTS ON THEIR HEADS.
