ASTORIA, OR (KPTV) -

Efforts to remove hundreds of nuisance sea lions in Astoria took a strange turn Thursday, with the Port of Astoria deploying a boat-like contraption made to resemble an orca to scare off the animals.

was originally built as a parade float, but when it's designer heard of the Port's sea lion problem, he offered its services.

Well, I think we got to give Sea Lions a bit more credit on being able to recognize a live Orca and a parade float.

Will the wonders of science never cease... Perhaps they should have made a sub that looks like an orca...
