    I'm not a parent, but I'd be pretty embarrassed if I was her parent.

    Situation could've been much worse.

    Check out the link above. Specialists said it wasn't sea lion's fault.

    A funny quote, 'It was as big a surprise to the sea lion as it was to the little girl'

    The moment she sat on the ledge. Her fate was sealed.

    How can city be sued if warning signs are posted, it's families fault for disregarding the warning...... Doesnt help that the next day more idiots went to the spot to feed the animal again

    ...and then there are the morons that ignore the signs that say the Grind is closed.....guess who will be the first to bitch and complain if it takes five minutes too long for Search and Rescue to haul their sorry asses off the mountain... Why is it so many people feel so damn entitled nowadays....the signs apply to other people..not me, I'm special.
    I think my guardian angel drinks...
    I'll tell you what's wrong with society....nobody drinks from the skulls of their enemies anymore.
    Ever look at somebody and say.."Yup, they've got bodies buried in the basement."
    If you are going to fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.....and brother it's starting to rain.

    sea lions are solid muscle, ask a pro diver what they think of sea lions and they laugh and tell you they stay away from them
    can be very dangerous
