It very cute but I hope it's not one of sea lion pups that's weak and sick.

Wow, what a neat experience. I do hope the little sea lion was OK and not asking for help though.

What a wonderful experience. I hope they can figure out why so many are dying. The little guy just needed a place to snuggle and rest. :)

So cute. But I hope this doesn't lead to people bother the babies. They are still wild animals.

Maybe its mom was eaten? or it got lost?

I always worry over a wild animal showing such thrust in humans. It's perilous for that baby. As a species,we don't deserve their thrust.

That was INCREDIBLE!! How AWESOME!! Being an avid animal lover like I am, if the baby seal had rubbed up against my lap like this one, I would've HAD TO PET IT!!!! This man showed no mercy and probably for the safety of the baby seal; if another seal noticed a 'different scent' on him, no telling what would've happened to it. Thnx Agnes, loved it!!!!!
