An unfortunate incident happened along a shoreline within the past week, where a teenage girl was bitten by a sea lion. Video captured the incident as it showed the girl dancing in ankle-deep water as the sea lion bit her. The incident seemed to be unprovoked.
The girl is okay; however, she is understandably frightened of sea lions.
The animal was tested for diseases and was identified to have Domoic Acid poisoning, which can occur during algal blooms along a coastline.
In this episode, I comment on the incident; how the media reported on it; and, the rarity of these types of attacks.
