A day at the pier became a moment of terror for a young girl in Canada.

The young woman was watching a sea lion at the Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf in British Columbia when the animal suddenly attacked, according to video captured by Vancouver resident Michael Fujiwara, the Vancouver Sun reported.

At first the sea lion leaped from the water and got close to the girl, who laughed and jumped back.

But the next leap was not playful at all.

It sprung from the water, bit the girl’s dress, and jerked her backwards into the water.

Quickly a man, believed to be one of the girl’s relatives, dove into the water and brought her to safety.

“I was just sitting by the dock and then this sea lion popped its head out of the water just in front of me. I just took out my cell phone and started filming,” Fujiwara told the Sun.

“The sea lion actually attracted a lot of attention from the visitors there, including the young girl,” the videographer said. “She and her family, I guess, they came, they started feeding the animal bread crumbs or whatever it was, and then I guess the animal got a little too comfortable.
