To try to scare sea lions which were taking refuge at the docks in the city of Astoria, Oregon in the US, authorities came up with an original idea: build a replica of an orca, almost ten meters long, made of fiberglass.

The measure was taken because orcas are predators of sea lions, which are interfering with fishing activities in Astoria. Before opting for the fake animal, there had been other options but without success. They included the use of an electric mattresses and colored balls to scare the sea lions.
