Angered Angler Arrested for Stabbing Sea Lion
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
When a nearby sea lion stole 24-year-old Hai Nguyen’s bait as he fished along California’s Newport Beach, the enraged angler allegedly stabbed the animal with a steak knife, injuring it so badly it had to be put down. Nguyen has been arrested and could face a $25,000 fine and year in prison. Read the report here.
