A man jumped into the water immediately after the girl was pulled in and rescued her, and people on the dock helped pull the two out of the water.

"Seal finger or "sealer's finger" is a bacterial infection of the fingers and hand".

Seal finger infections are caused by different kinds of Mycoplasma bacteria, which live naturally in the mouths of sea mammals like seals and sea lions, according to a 2009 published case report.

Vancouver Aquarium said the family involved contacted them after seeing an expert talking about the risk during a new report.

She suffered a superficial wound and is now receiving treatment, according to the Vancouver Aquarium. I just took out my cell phone and started filming.

Attacks by sea lions on humans are rare, Lt. John Sandmeyer told a local television station in San Diego, where a sea lion dragged a 62-year-old man off his boat and about 20 feet (6 metres) underwater. They are also reportedly considering legal action against the student who filmed the incident for "insinuating they were the ones feeding the sea lion". "But then it made its stunning heel turn".

The sea lion appears to have been drawn to the dock on Saturday by adults who were reportedly throwing bread crumbs into the water. Once they stopped, the sea lion got frustrated.

They say that males are highly aggressive when it comes to earning the right to mate with females.

Several animal trainers across the country have spoken out about the incident in defence of the sea lion. Lau said the girl's grandfather was the person who saved his daughter.

"You have to be very careful". 'Some people don't read signs or don't care, they're blockheads, they think it's OK for kids to get close to the sea lions'. Witnesses say they saw parents scolding their children to work harder and warning them that they would be enrolled in more remedial classes if they continued to underperform. But you have to know to use them first. "You have a hungry animal and these people are dumb enough to feed it", he said.
