[VIDEO:] Family Dog of Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly Kills Sea Lion in Laguna Beach
The Kelly family was vacationing at the Montage Saturday when Kelly's daughter took the 65-pound dog for a walk on the beach with a leash. But the pooch broke free, charged at a sea lion and, as the graphic video below shows, locked its teeth onto the sea creature:
A male onlooker can be heard shouting "Drown the dog! Drown the dog!," later explaining if the canine was placed underwater, it would unlock the dying sea lion and swim to shore. Mark Kelly later appears to take control over the dog and walk it back up the steps to the resort. The sea lion later died.
A spokesperson for Kelly says the family crated the dog and talked with police officers, who did not cite anyone because the dog broke free from its leash and no laws were broken.
