You can read all about it at the Washington Post, but the TL;DR version is that a sea lion in British Columbia got pissed at this little girl as a bunch of tourists were feeding it and dragged her into the water as soon as her back was turned. Thankfully, according to the report, she wasn’t injured.

Here’s the longer clip that was posted to YouTube, and as you might imagine, it’s gone viral. Kudos to the hero adult who jumped right in to save the little girl:

And that’s why you’re not supposed to feed wild animals.
Btw for the record I don't blame the sea lion. The family was joking with him and feeding him. Animals act only on instinct. https://t.co/NeKWGI8wpl
