Plastic Coyotes Used to Ward Off Sea Lions


Orange County is aligning with an unlikely ally to keep sea lions away from the harbor in Newport Beach.

The city has deployed plastic coyotes to stop what they say is a "growing problem of sea lions causing damage by climbing onto boats and decks."

The incredibly terrifying animals are realistically detailed, are growling while baring sharp fangs.

Officials have spent about $200 on the statues and so far, it seems to be working (but let's be real, who wouldn't be scared of these things!?)
