Giffords' Husband Pulls Dog Off Baby Sea Lion Too Late

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 11 / AP) Amateur video shows former astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, yanking away a dog that clamped down on a baby sea lion at a California beach.

Laguna Beach police tell the news media the attack happened near an exclusive resort Saturday.

In video obtained by media sources, Kelly's screaming daughter tries to pull her dog from the sea lion as two other women help. Kelly finally steps in and wrests the animal free. It later died.

A spokeswoman for Kelly's political committee says the family crated the dog and then talked to officers.

Police say the dog broke from its leash, and no laws were broken. Kelly and Giffords recently started a gun control advocacy group.

The former Arizona congresswoman was shot in 2011.

    It's no secret that Microsoft has struggled in the hardware department so I can't say whether the Surface Pro 3 will be the hero Microsoft needs but I can say it is the modern computing experience users deserve. I love it and think you should too! Read on to find out why.
