If you’ve ever wondered why animal experts make such a big fuss about not feeding the animals, have a look at the video below.
An unfortunate family experienced a nightmare interaction with a seemingly tame sea lion. They had been feeding this particular sea lion, which seems harmless. According to the dock workers in British Columbia, this often happens. The sea lions are so used to it, the actually swim up to people looking for something to eat.
This time it all went horribly wrong. The sea lion jumped out of the water, grabbed onto a little girl and dragged her off the dock and into the water. Another member of the family jumped in and retrieved her from the clutches of the eager animal.
This time things worked out well in the end, but this video is a shocking reminder that wild animals shouldn’t be treated as pets.
