Gabrielle Giffords' Dog Shoots Baby Sea Lion

No, not really, but I figured I needed to have a gun reference in the thread title to keep it in this subforum.

This situation has so much irony in it that I had to share. Most of the commenters to the story at the link seem to understand the irony.

LAGUNA BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Gabrielle Giffords’ husband pulled his daughter’s dog off of a sea lion in Laguna Beach over the weekend.

The incident, which was captured on video, happened around 1:40 p.m. Saturday at Goff Cove Beach by the Montage Laguna Beach.

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly’s 18-year-old daughter, who was on vacation with her father and Giffords, was walking the American bulldog on a leash when the 65-pound dog saw the sea lion, ran off and attacked.

Nathan, who declined to give his last name, happened to be having lunch nearby when he started to film the chaotic scene on his cellphone.

The graphic video, which he later posted on YouTube, showed the young girl screaming while her dog had the sea lion by the neck.

Two other women tried to help until Kelly finally arrived and forced the dog off of the animal.

The sea lion later died.
“It was pretty much just panic. People didn’t know how to act when a dog of this size just locked down (and didn’t let go),” said Nathan.

Nathan said he posted the video online unaware it featured the family of former Arizona Congresswoman Giffords, who was shot in the head in 2011.

“I was shocked. I didn’t know that it was them. I felt bad that they went through this stressful situation,” he said.

Police said the Kelly family did nothing wrong and no one will face any charges.

Nathan hopes the video will serve as a reminder to pet owners that things can quickly go awry with an overpowering dog.

“If you have a dog of that stature and that power, they should be accompanied by someone who can handle a dog that is as powerful as an American bulldog,” he said.

cornhole the dog with ur finger, it will let go.


i think that kelly's daughter should be held liable under the Marine mammal protection act of 1972 for failing to control her animal resulting in the death of a protected species.

that being said, the dog is not responsible for it's actions.

That dangerous assault dog should be banned. There is no need for someone to have an assault dog that looks and acts that evil.

Ban leashes.


I don't know how that will help but it will make it look like we're doing something.

I thought you were supposed to lift the dog up by its hind legs to get it to let go. I would ask for video proof of this cornholing method but I think it may be illegal in the US. Sounds legit....Haha.

look at it this way, wouldnt you stop whatever you were doing if someone finger fucked your asshole?

its a good way to get the dog to release without actually causing physical harm to the dog.

if i were actually being attacked by some dog it'd would be a hard punch to the nose or gouging the eyes. or if he had my arm i would shove it as far back in his mouth as possible and try to gag him out of the bite. never pull away or try to struggle too much

My partner got called a that by some crazy bitch. We had to utilize the Urban Dictionary to figure out what it was. I laughed pretty heartily.
