Seals Take Over Dock
Not many cities can say they have a sea lion problem - but Rainer, Oregon can.
Hundreds of sea lions have taken over this dock near a river in the small city -- and more keep coming along, scouting the area for fish. Some residents love their new neighbors. Others - not so much. There have been complaints that their barking is too noisy. Plus, the city's fishermen are worried about damage to the wooden docks.
The city is working on setting up temporary fencing to keep the sea lions out. City officials also warn people to be careful about approaching these seemingly adorable creatures... Because they can be aggressive.
