  • After Viral Video, Experts Say Don't Feed Sea Lions

"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".

Residents of a waterfront community in British Columbia are blaming human behaviour for a harrowing incident over the long weekend that saw a little girl yanked off a dock by a sea lion.

"Instead of getting closer, the people should have removed themselves and given this animal plenty of space". Based on research, sea lions are known for their curiosity.

The girl was seen on video shrieking as she was dragged into the cold water.

A Fisheries and Oceans Canada note warns that people found disturbing a marine mammal can faces fines of up to $100,000.

Baziuk, the harbor authority's general manager, told CBC News that officials are looking into printing signs in other languages, such as Mandarin and Cantonese.
