” A horrifying video has emerged showing an American bulldog belonging to Gabby Giffords’ stepdaughter viciously attacking a baby sea lion on a California beach, eventually killing it.
The Arizona Democrat’s husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, is seen running to the bloody scene and shaking the fatally-injured animal from the dog’s jaws in the amateur video.
The attack happened on Saturday afternoon near the exclusive Goff Cove Beach in Laguna Beach where former Rep. Giffords, her husband and his daughter are staying, Laguna Beach police said.
Authorities told the Los Angeles Times that Kelly and his 18-year-old daughter, the dog’s owner, were walking along the beach when the animal spotted the sea lion and broke free from its leash.
A passerby, Nathan Straw, saw the attack unfold, recorded it on his mobile phone and later provided the video to the Times and KABC-TV.”
