YES – if you've never messed with them, you don't know how vicious and damaging the lions are. They will take over a dog and prevent people from getting to their boats, if you force the issue instead of just jumping in the water to get away (like a harbor seal will do) they will bear their teeth and get ready for battle. Now true, you can back away from them a lot quicker than they can move. But still, those dangerous things will damage the dock, and if one of them gets inside your boat by going up over the gunwale well you can just count on your watercraft being pretty much destroyed. They don't do that maliciously,just by the way they run around and are strong enough to smack a hole through the side of the hull with their tail and sink your boat. They have lots of beaches they can go up on, I personally think shooting them would be OK-but the animal lovers think that's unacceptable.
