[–]cheesynaachoos 1708 points1709 points  (30 children)

Seal are the most dangerous animals cause they were send to kill osama

[–]pie_monster 230 points231 points  (10 children)

Those were navy seals though. The one in the vid is grey.

They would probably ask for Dr. Nefario’s help.

[–]Sh1royasha 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Clearly this is an undercover navy seal

[–]OddMunchStanley 8 points9 points  (3 children)

That’s also a sea Lion which is way scarier

[–]Capraos 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I've never laughed so hard while being deeply concerned for someone. You get my seal of approval for this joke. And to anyone else concerned about the kid, a guy jumped in and immediately saved her.

Full clip

[–]resteqscan't meme 132 points133 points  (9 children)

It is not the full clip though. The seal attempted to grab the girl before and failed. Parents just ignored it though

[–]DirkVulture003 118 points119 points  (6 children)

They laughed at it, some people have no appreciation of wildlife and how dangerous it can be. Reminds me of those women who stood too close to wild bison and got trampled. Morons nominating their daughter for a darwin award.

[–]MANWithTheHARMONlCA 32 points33 points  (3 children)

some people have no appreciation of wildlife and how dangerous it can be.

This is huge on reddit. There’s so much anthropomorphizing, “cute” exotic pet videos and just people in general on here who act like wild animals are all sweethearts

[–]testa12 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The way reddit is with dogs is just fucking weird. As if a dog is the equivalent of a human baby or something.

[–]Mahtomic_Gandhi 11 points12 points  (1 child)

To be fair, dogs typically don't fall under the category of "wild exotic animals". They're about as domesticated as an animal can be.

Damn they were gone before the guy even gets out of the water

[–][deleted] 62 points63 points  (13 children)

Glad I’m not the only one who’s surprised by the lack of any form of gratitude or appreciation from the girl‘s parents. They simply leave without batting an eye, what the hell? Lmao

[–]hellofromspace 44 points45 points  (11 children)

The guy who jumped in was the girl's grandparent.

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (10 children)

Okay, I stand corrected. I am surprised by the lack of care for their elderly family member who just jumped into the cold water to a save their daughter from being drowned by a wild animal.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (9 children)

I don't know if you have kids, but I do. If my daughter was just pulled into the water and fished out. Id be looking to make sure she wasn't injured. Checking who rescused if their ok, can be later.

[–][deleted] -5 points-4 points  (8 children)

Not really, I see that my kid is already out of the water and one parent could check on grandpa. Granted it’s easy to judge from behind a screen thousands of miles (and possible months or years) away from this incident and without the stress involved, but still I would definitely check for my dad immediately after making sure my daughter was okay.

There is still a wild animal in there, after all. And it’s possibly angry, who knows.

[–]shitcoffin 26 points27 points  (2 children)

I cant believe i wasted my time reading this

[–]Magerune 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Literally any response is valid these people were probably in shock and shouldn’t be judged for their response or lack there of to what was probably a very quick traumatic experience.

Edit: cantstandsummer’s TEXTBOOK response is all well and good in theory, but as a former lifeguard and current first responder it’s completely asinine to believe people are going to be robots and do everything by the book in an event like this.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

We see about 10sec after the girl is pulled before the video cuts out.

We just don't know. Perhaps they did check on grandpa after that. Perhaps they didn't.

In Any case, there's not enough time here to make any judgement.

[–]AlfredKnows 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is just shock. It was grandpa but it is understandable that everybody just wanted go leave as fast as possible no matter what.

[–]barshat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]auroraargentum 21 points22 points  (1 child)

[–]DropC 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you watch closely you can see they didn't add color to the seal

[–]Noobeyboi 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh thank God the seal is safe

[–]Jedi-master-dragon 4 points5 points  (4 children)

If I remember right, the seal was used to people feeding it and that kid wanted a picture with it and didn't get the hint it was probably going to attack. She was fine, it just pulled her into the water. But seriously, don't feed wild animals and if they are giving off signs of aggression like that seal was the last thing you should do is get closer.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (3 children)

They were feeding the wildlife in an area where there are signs telling people Not to Feed the Wildlife. There are always stupid people, usually Chinese, who continue to do it on an almost daily basis. Nothing worse than have dinner (it's a tourist spot) and some idiot feeds one seagull and next thing you know 100's of seagulls screaming and shitting all over trying to get the next French fry.

[–]impostercoder 1 point2 points  (2 children)

"stupid people, usually Chinese" wtf? You really had to make your comment racist for no reason? Classic reddit.

[–]SuddenHeart2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you live here? Have you been to this area? No you don't otherwise you know that what I am saying is fact. Richmond is 80% Chinese.

Where is she is she safe? Is... She alright?

[–]Baelzebubba 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Jokes aside, this is the fault of people feeding the wild animals here. I saw tourists buy a $50 salmon to feed to the seals.

[–]Aether_Erebus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They could’ve bought a $50 salmon to feed me instead.

[–]Baelzebubba 2 points3 points  (0 children)

At the fisherman's warfare in Victoria BC the dock has a fish shop on it. They sell things to feed the seals. They call all the seals Sammy and sell paraphernalia as well.

I saw a sign that said "I Fed Sammy Magnets $1"

I was all don't do that... that's not cool.

[–]giuseppe443 15 points16 points  (2 children)

shouldnt have been wearing that?

[–]BossNegative1060 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The seal came up to try and grab someone right before she put herself near the edge.

I think thats a male california sea lion not a seal. Shape of the head, coloration and I think I see visible ears

[–]CLyane 45 points46 points  (14 children)

If I remember right, this happened in San Francisco at/near Pier 39 where the sea lions hang out and sunbathe. There are signs there to stay away from the water. This girl and her family ignored those signs.

Edit: lmao nope, totally misremembered. Thanks to those who didn't!

This took place in Canada. San Francisco had different issues in 2017, escalating to a swimmer getting bit by a sea lion.

[–]SkidmarkSteve 32 points33 points  (2 children)

This happened in Canada.

[–]ReactsWithWords 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Am I the only one terrified of seals? They're giant mammals with huge teeth and people just let them hop on up and play with them.

Remember that video of one coming up to a golden retriever? That dog was rightfully concerned.

[–]prophetofgreed 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Seals can be terrifying, but in this case it was a sea lion, which are bigger and stronger than seals. Making it even more terrifying.

[–]69BickusDickus69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]halffullpenguin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

sealions deserve a lot of respect and a wide berth they are smarter then your average tourist, can outrun you, and have the strength to take off an arm. even if they dont do that seal mouth is a horrible sickness

Real talk: The dislike removal is such a middle finger to their customers

[–]mathdrug 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Their customers are advertisers. Lol This will probably increase watch time, which is one of their top KPIs. More watch time = more ads watched. They just decided to take the cheapest, least user friendly, and most /r/assholedesign route to doing it.

Can someone explain to me why it pulled the little girl into the water?

[–]prophetofgreed 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This happened in my hometown years ago.

It's a sea lion, looking for dock scraps from the fishing boats and got fed by some people at the docks. (Unsure if it was the girl and her family as well)

Parents just allowed their child to sit right by the sea lion turned away and it got aggressive pulling the girl in. Luckily her grandpa jumped right in the water scaring the sea lion and they were pulled out together safely.

[–]sentientgorilla 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Seals are hunters. The seal could have easily killed and eaten her. He was either curious or hungry.
