Last night some citizens reported a sea lion snapping at them on Venice Beach just north of the pier. LAPD dispatched their beach units for the “415 Sea Lion” and sure enough the cute little bugger was resting on the beach not wanting to be messed with. He had a tag on his ear, showing that he has been rescued and rehabbed in San Pedro in the past. People make the mistake of wanting to pet them, and they 100% do not want that and will be happy to bite you with jaws equal to ten dobermans in return. As the officers shined their flashlights on the sea lion… tons of grunions were flipping around on the beach. Sergeant Gonzales picked up a fish, tossed it to the sea lion and he gobbled it right up! That must have reminded him that there are tons of fish in the water because the sea lion turned around and high-tailed it back into the water. Officer Ballerini led the way for him with his flashlight. All but one grunion survived.
