But who's really at fault in this attack?

That's a pretty big yank, she went flying, bet she didn't even know what was going on until she got back out of the water.

mrteatime What amazes me, watching it in slow motion, is that the girl saw the danger and had moved nearly a foot away from the railing as the sea lion rose up out of the water. Despite this, the sea lion caught her dress anyway and effectively said, "Nope. You're going this way!"

I watched a slightly longer video (here) and it appears the sea lion knew it was a girl he was grabbing. He'd been interacting with the family for several minutes and at least once before bobbed up out of the water at the same girl, attempting what looks like a playful nip at her face (if a nip by a sea lion can be described as playful).

Hard to say, but it looked to me as if he pulled the girl into the water out of mischief not malice.

No question it thought her dress (or something) was food, pretty abruptly let go when it realised she wasn't. Fault? Not really, sometimes these things just happen. Credit to the guy who jumped in, he was really quick off the mark. Less credit to the person filming, who just kept filming.

Holy hell, that sea lion took all of a second or two to grab that girl after she sat down.
