Whenever I visit a zoo, aquarium or heck even an amusement park like Disney World with my kids, I always tell them to stay near me. Don’t touch things that are unfamiliar to you. Don’t feed or try to reach out to animals. And certainty don’t try to be playful with them, too.
That’s why everyone is talking about his viral clip of a sea lion dragging down a girl into the water. The incident occurred in British Columbia over the weekend. The girl’s family reportedly had been feeding the sea lion and whistling or holding their hands over the water, as if they were holding a treat.
But what happened next is what has everyone talking. Who is to blame here and how should it have been prevented?
