Former astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, was seen attempting to handle his daughter's dog as it attacked a sea lion at an exclusive resort in Laguna Beach Saturday.
The attached video shows Kelly's screaming daughter and two other women trying to pull her dog away from the sea lion, but were unsuccessful.
Kelly finally stepped in and was able to wrestle the animal free. The sea lion died shortly after the incident.
The local Animal Control said that the attack was unfortunate, but not intentional.
The dog broke from its leash and no laws were broken, police said.
