(Video) What not to do around Sea Lions: Sea lion grabs girl off pier and drags her into waters

Teachable moment.  No matter how cute you may think an animal is, like a Sea Lion, you don't turn your back on a wild animal!
NY Post reports astounding new footage shows a sea lion grabbing a little girl off a dock and pulling her underwater.
The kid was feeding the male sea mammal bread crumbs near the water near Vancouver, Canada, on Saturday, but when she sat down on the edge of the jetty, the huge creature tried to make a meal out of her — grabbing her dress in its jaws and dragging her into the water.
“It initially jumped up to the girl to read her I guess,” Michael Fujiwara, the local who captured the dramatic video told the CBC.
“And then it came back up a second time, but this time grabbing the girl by the waist and dragging her down into the water.”

The little girl was just being a little girl, and the Sea Lion was being a Sea Lion.  She wasn't at fault.  But, others can lean a valuable lesson.
