In a now-viral video posted to Tiktok, two sea lions can be seen taking on a large crowd of La Jolla Cove visitors who were getting a little too close for comfort to the animal locals.

Charlianne Yeyna, a Riverside County resident visiting San Diego for the weekend, said she decided to pick up her phone and start recording after noticing a woman attempting to take a picture of one of the sleeping sea lions. The sea lion woke up mid-picture and began to chase the woman in the direction of the large crowd on the beach, Yeyna said.

At least two dozen people can be seen running from the two sea lions as the animals quickly waddle across the sand toward the crowd.

Since being posted Saturday evening, the video has amassed more than 7.3 million views and 970,000 likes on the social media app.

Yeyna said that despite their aggressive approach, the animals went back into the water and no one appeared to be hurt. WGN9

According to Sea World experts, a better headline would be: Sea Lions behaving naturally terrify humans. Apparently, they were two males sparring over right to breed and territory when humans got in the way.

Their take conflicts with the eye witness who took the original vid.
