Watch this terrifying moment as a sea lion grabs a child! [Video]

How terrifying would this be?  You are enjoying a nice day on the docks with your family when a sea lion grabs your child and pulls her into the water.  Terrifying to say the least.  Now, back up a few minutes earlier and realize how you could have changed the way this played out.  The sea lion is in its natural environment, swimming and bothering no one.  You and your family decide its probably cute and would maybe like a snack.  So you decide to feed it.  Then your child decides to try and get a little closer.  Next thing you know, the sea lion, knowing no better, reaches up and grabs the child.  Thankfully, quick thinking by a bystander keeps this from being a tragic outcome.  Remember, wild animals are wild.  I am so glad this little girl is ok, but we need to be wiser around wildlife.

“Dramatic video shot Saturday shows a large sea lion grabbing and pulling underwater a young girl sitting on a dock near Vancouver.”

‘“The sea lion actually attracted a lot of attention from the visitors there, including the young girl,” he told the Vancouver Sun. “She and her family, I guess, they came, they started feeding the animal bread crumbs or whatever it was, and then I guess the animal got a little too comfortable.”’
