A sea lion pulling you overboard is one of the last things you would expect…
Dan Carlin was posing for a picture with a nice fish for his wife when a sea lion emerged from out of the water and grabbed his fish.
This is a scenario that has been seen several times over the years when fishermen get their catches stolen by sea lions. However, in this case, the sea lion also grabbed his hand and pulled him overboard, along with the fish.
Hear the story yourself, directly from Carlin’s perspective.
“It was terrifying when the sea lion was taking me down and I was going at that rate of speed,” said Carlin. “At that point, I knew I was going to die.”
As heard in the video, Carlin and his wife both say they don’t feed the sea lions and dispose of their waste accordingly. Somewhere though, this sea lion learned to be greedy. Luckily, it all turned out okay.
