This is why they tell you NOT to feed the sea lions!
Some tourists in Vancouver got the shock of their lives while checking out (and feeding) a sea lion near the pier in Richmond.
A little girl was clearly smitten by the sea lion and laughed as it popped its head up to check things out.
Tourists around the little girl were throwing the sea lion bits of bread, and apparently, he appreciated the snack a little too much.
So much so that when the snacking stopped, he wanted more!
As the little girl sat on the edge of the pier facing away from the sea lion, it lunged up and grabbed the little girl's dress and pulled her into the water, while bystanders screamed.
A man jumped into the water immediately to grab the little girl and get her out.
The little girl was soaked, but was apparently unharmed and walked away with her family.
Lesson...DON'T FEED THE SEA LIONS!
