Gabrielle Giffords’ Husband Pulls Daughter’s Dog Off Sea Lion In Laguna Beach

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.

If I had been there with my Colt AR 15 I could have put down that vicious dog and saved that poor baby sea lion. Sigh

Kelly’s vicious dog should be put down with extreme prejudice.

Dogs’ teeth don’t kill sea lion pups, the gums holding those teeth do.

Let’s outlaw the possession of teeth by dog gums!

A good guy with a Glock could have helped a lot. Not all Glock users are nuts like Loughner.

obviously she's not capable of controlling/having a dog... there better be a hefty fine attached to her behavior along with her not being allowed to own a dog

Come on. Where are the usual Pit Bull defenders?

You have a dog bred to kill, no one should be shocked when it kills.

Silly prole. She's connected to the elite class; there will be no fine.

I heard this story earlier today — didn’t know there was a connection to Gabby Giffords and Mike Kelly.

Thanks for posting.

Just as a thought exercise, imagine if Romney, Gingrich, Perry, Sarah, or any repub,, had their pitbull, videotaped killing baby seals.

We need to outlaw those Military fully automatic Assault Dogs, no civilian has any need for them, and do universal background checks on anyone wanting to buy a defense dog or hunting dog, as dogs are too easy to obtain.

Additionally, defense dogs should be limited to seven dull teeth to prevent excessive penetration, and hunting dogs should only carry three teeth.

And all the fisheys in

And said Yay! Yay! Yay!

American Bulldogs on Beach Patrol know how to un-seal a Beach.

Now they need to be trained to un-seal Obama’s official papers and school report cards.

Imagine if this were one of Bushs’s dogs?
We’d NEVER hear the end of it.

SoCal has VERY strict leash laws — I was yelled at via bullhorn by cops a few days ago for having my little Shuh-Tzu off leash on a fenced path alongside the freeway. Thank God I was behind a fence and there was nowhere for the cop to park —heard later it’s a $370 fine + an automatic appearance in court — and that the cops go out looking for off-leash dogs because it’s easy $$ for the city.

In the article it says “ Retired Astronauts have immunity from charges”...What is that all about? They can’t be charged with crimes because they are retired Astronauts?

Bottom line, there is no Rule of Law in America, anymore.

An American Bull Dog is not a “Pit Bull.” You really ought to learn something about dog breeds, especially what the different working-dog breeds were bred for. And any dog can be animal-aggressive (that’s the Wolf in them)!

Just a couple of weeks ago a man was charged with a crime for simply riding on a manatee. Maybe Mr. Kelly should be jailed for the death of this baby seal.

The ordinary citizen would be charged with violation of the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the NOAA SWAT team (stormtroopers) would take you out.

A former neighbor had one. He used it to hunt the local feral Russian boars. He NEVER let it outside of the double fenced yard! Never!

Probably. This bastard dog needs to be put down. If you own a vicious dog like this your ass needs to keep it on a harness AND muzzel. Really this family is shady as hell.
Any normal dog, even a protective one might run at the seal and bark and snap but this dog got a death grip on the throat lasting over four minutes. Why aren’t the authorities taking that monster and putting it down, because it’s clearly a killer.
