Vancouver Sea Lion pulls young girl into water
Global is reporting that "A young girl was pulled into the water near Richmond, B.C., by a sea lion Saturday in a dramatic scene which was captured on video." We sea seals all over Vancouver. I dont think I've ever been kayaking and not see a seal. For the most part they are very friendly yet we are always told not to feed them. Feeding the lions and tigers and bears is never a good idea whenever you visit. A sea lion came up to the dock in richmond and the family were feeding it.
All of a sudden the sea lion jumped out of the water and pulled the little girl into the water. Without hesitation the father jumoed right in after it and saved the girl. Quick thinking on the fathers part avoided a potential problem. There's no evidence the sea lion was trying to harm the girl but is is entirely possible. Moral of the story is dont feed the sea lions or get too close. This is the video.
