Commercial fishermen aboard a Russian boat discovered they caught a large sea lion inside one of their nets. Their attempt to free the rather unhappy large mammal was caught on video.

Video of the fishermen cutting the angry sea lion out of the net was posted online Tuesday.

As soon as the sea lion, which doesn’t look to have missed a meal, was freed from the net, it grabbed one of the fishermen’s sleeves and tossed him like a ragdoll.

The boat’s curious dog tentatively approached the sea lion and received a warning bite.

The video continues by showing fishermen using a powerful hose to move the sea lion to the edge of the deck.

There was no indication which fishing boat was involved in the incident or when it happened.
