    Default California man admits stabbing sea lion

    Calif. man admits stabbing sea lion - Yahoo! News


    A fisherman pleaded guilty on Wednesday to stabbing a sea lion that apparently stole his bait.
    Hai Nguyen, 24, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of illegally taking and attempting to kill a marine mammal, admitting that he violated the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act.
    Nguyen faces up to a year in prison and a fine of $20,000 at his March sentencing, prosecutors said.
    Nguyen was arrested in July in Newport Beach. Police said he was fishing off a pier when the sea lion apparently took the bait from his fishing line.
    Authorities said Nguyen then stabbed the sea lion with a steak knife. The animal was taken to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, where staff found the knife had pierced the sea lion's heart.
    It was later euthanized.
    Nguyen told U.S. Magistrate Judge Carla Woehrle that he never intended to kill the animal.
    "I was fishing, and I tried to scare it away," he said.

    I'm so sad they weren't able to save this big guy. I can't tell you what I wish to happen to this guy. So sick of losers killing animals. Too bad this big guy didn't take a chunk of him. The Pacific Marine Mammal Center is amazing. I've donated stuff to them before. They always need blankets, Dawn dish soap and Tide I want to actually volunteer, but I'm afraid that my heart couldn't take it. They always need volunteers

    What kind of ASSHOLE could look at a face like this and stab it in the heart?



    I believe there's an extra toasty corner of hell for hateful bastards like this.
