California Sea Lions Attack Humans
Now a series of sea-lion attacks on people in recent months has led experts to warn that the animals are not as cute and cuddly as they appear.
“People should understand these animals are out there not to attack people or humans. But they’re out there to survive for themselves,” said Jim Oswald, a spokesman for the Marine Mammal Center across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco.
The article goes on to explain several theories about why the sea lions are attacking. Nobody mentions my favorite theory: They are finally tired of sharing space with us. Humans are a greedy, selfish, abusive species; and I can’t say I’d blame them.
