Do Sea Lions Eat Dogs?
I don't recommend that dogs swim in an area where seals and sea lions are active. Why take a chance?
Recently, I was headed to the Long Beach Peninsula. We stopped at a place called Skamokawa Vista Park. We walked along the Mighty Columbia River (my favorite river) and all of a sudden a whole bunch of huge sea lions appeared in the mist. They were swimming up river. I think they had their eye on some of the salmon and didn't notice me.
But I noticed them and backed away to play on some logs. I recommend keeping a distance from these pinnipeds (I just learned that term)! Here's an article that tells more about dogs and sea lions.
Not everything on the beach is safe for us dogs. It's a wonderful place if we are careful.
