A little girl was left traumatised after a sea lion grabbed her as she sat on the edge of a pier before dragging her underwater

The horrifying incident took place at the Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf in Richmond B.C., in Canada, as tourists watched the animal looking for fish

Killer Sea lion drags girl into Steveston waters

Footage shows people laughing as the sea lion bobs up and down in the water.
At one point it jumps right up to a young girl who was leaning over the side of the pier to get a better look

She flinches back and giggles – seemingly thinking the animal is being playful – before sitting at the water’s edge

But the sea lion then leaps from the water grabs her by the dress before pulling her in
Onlookers gasp and scream as a man, believed to be a relative, jumps fully clothed into the harbour to rescue her

He lifts her to safety before climbing out himself – clearly shaken by the incident.

The sea lion does not reappear as the completely drenched young girl is led away by relatives

  1. Fucking hell, can we please just start feeding tourists to the sea lions? It's a sea lion, it's got lion in its FUCKING NAME!

    Hell, where I'm from some dumb tourist bitch lost her dog to one about a week ago. Poor dog, had it only gone for the woman instead…

  2. wow. this must be some kind of faked video, 'cause it's the stupid worthless inferior MAN who jumps into the water and saves the child, while the superior omnipotent WOMEN all stand around uselessly screaming. THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT! obviously a hoax.

  3. That's stupid to be sitting on the edge anyway! How could they allow a child to sit on the edge like that? Come on! These people need lessons, except fir that nice man who jumped in and saved her.

  4. they cut out the part where they were feeding the sea lions
    why do they forget that sea lions are wild animals not zoo animals. Those parents let their child sit in the dock so close to the sea lions while feeding them. ofcourse their instinct is that the little girl is gonna feed them food.
    This is very similar to the Harambe accident, the parents are at fault for letting their child go that close.
    we literally need parental guidance for these stupid parents… tsk tsk

  5. THESE PEOPLE ARE SUCH IDIOTS, IT'S THERE FAULT THAT THERE GIRL WAS PULLED INTO THE WATER!! BECAUSE THEY WERE TEASING IT, AND THEY WERE STUPID ENOUGH TO NOT KNOW THAT WILD ANIMALS SHOULDN'T BE FED!! DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING! AND OF COURSE THEY KILLED IT BECAUSE "it attacked her" BUT REALLY THERE SHOULD BE NO BLAME ON THE SEA LION AT AAALLLL!!!

  6. Great Job Sea Lion! One more group of speculative property hoarders just left town!! Go Sea Lion Go!! Super Sea Lion, defender of affordable housing in the lower-mainland!

  7. I blame movie creators. they make films where ppl have these as pets showing them as harmless and ppl think "they were cute and sweet in the movies so yeah in real life it's the same…go ahead suziensit next to the wild creature"

  8. The family spoke Mandarin in a dialect from Mainland China. In summary, an adult male encourage the seal to get closer and thought feeding the seal was bread was a good idea.
    But the girl and an adult female thought it was a bad idea.
    Here is a transcript of what was said:
    0:08 [Adult female]The seal is not afraid of people.
    0:48 [Girl] Do not give it more food.
    0:49 [Adult male] The seal can digest the food.
    0:51 [Adult female] Right, do not give it more bread.
    1:16 [Girl] The seal is back
    1:30 After the seal jumped up to see the girl:
    [Girl] I am OK.
    1:33 [Adult female] What if it actually bite you?
    1:37 Adult male enticed seal to come closer and waving hand as if to feed the seal
    [Adult male] Come, come, it is here.
    1:40 Seal grabbed girl's back
    1:50 Grandfather got out of the water and dropped sunglasses in water
    [Adult female] Sunglasses, sunglasses, clothing
    2:05 [Girl] Grandfather(maternal), Grand-father
    2:06 [Grand-father] I am OK. Do not be afraid.

  9. Fucking hilarious ! Don't tease the Lions yo!! I respect the sea Lion . He is hungry and peeps don't feed him gold their hands out with nothing in em sonyhe lion said OKAY BITCH YOU GET SPLASHED!!! He was gentle just grabbed her clothes had he wanted he could have dragged her to the bottom

  10. Stupid Chinese asshole. That's partial karma for all the horrible things that do to animals around the globe with their blood thirst and crappy customs. Elephants and hundreds of other species are on the brink because of these fucking backwards assholes.Too bad it couldn't have yanks the dad in with the kid. Maybe they will learn some respect but I doubt it.

  11. Let's not start blaming the parents. They were worried and immediately jumped in after her, unlike the child at the zoo who was left by himself in the gorilla pit.
