California sea lion grabs girl from dock and pulls her underwater

02 Juin, 2017, 12:37 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Michael Fujiwara, who captured the video, told the Vancouver Sun: "I was just sitting by the dock and then this sea lion popped its head out of the water just in front of me". She appeared physically unharmed.

A man jumped in and pulled the girl out of the water.

It was not ascertained if the good Samaritan was related to the girl. "If you feed the animals like this you're asking for trouble", he said, but sadly no one pays heed to his words, due to which incidents like these take place.

"They were pretty shaken up", Fujiwara explained to CBC News.

The terrified girl was led away by people on the dock, clearly dazed by her brush with death.

It is a viral video that grabs the heart of any parent.

Andrew Trites, the Director of UBC's Marine Mammal Research Unit, told reporters that it likely the sea lion thought the dress was food.

Right now, he said, male sea lions swim through the area looking for food.

"You wouldn't go up to a grizzly bear in the bush and hand him a ham sandwich, so you shouldn't be handing a thousand-pound wild animal in the water slices of bread", he said.

"When we see performing animals, like at the circus, we get false information about whether animals like to be around people. They're not trained to be next to people", he said.

At the Steveston Fisherman's Wharf in Richmond, B.C., Canada, a family visiting the wharf were trying to feed a sea lion pieces of bread.

A man standing near the girl immediately jumped into the water after her, grabbed her, and pulled her back out on the dock. "But it wasn't food of course", Trites continued. He says the animals are not inherently risky and are not looking to grab people.

"You keep your distance".

If you needed a reminder to be cautious around wildlife, this video is all you need to watch.
